It's My Birthiversary!

November is a big month for me -- it's my birthday month (it's my first 39th birthday this year!) ;-), and it's my anniversary month with Rodan+Fields.

This business changed EVERYTHING for me....not only our finances, but my friendships, my sense of purpose and wholeness, my family's dynamic, and my skin.  I'm a new person since this business, and I'm so thankful for this blessing in my life.

Meeting Dr Katie Rodan and Dr Kathy Fields

All that to say....I FEEL LIKE CELEBRATING! 

I try to not post too much here about this business, because you've come to know and love me for sharing other parts of my life.  But how do I not share when I'm giving away freebies?  

If you'd like to know how to have your name tossed in the hat for this one, visit my Skin, Beautiful Skin blog for the details:

In other news, I'm feeling so blessed and loved.  All joking about aging aside, I love having my birthday.  And I really don't mind aging at all.....would I rather be here and now with my wonderful kiddos and a full, happy life?....or 5, 10, 15 years ago with my perkier T&A?  It's a no-brainer.

My birthday was filled with phone calls from loved ones, hugs and kisses and crayon drawings from my kiddos, and a general feeling of...

I'm alive
On purpose
I LOVE this!

Life is good, friends.  It's not perfect.  It's not tidy.  But, it is good, and I'm so happy to be here!

I'm not the only one with a recent birthday though.  Remember that tiny little bundle who kept me hopping when I started this blog?

He just turned FIVE!

I am head over heels in love with this little boy, and I take every possible opportunity to hold his little hand in mine and to kiss his soft cheeks.

He is the very definition of "little boy"....loud, rambunctious, messy, funny, exhausting....and I wouldn't have him any other way.

He has the craziest ability to stop, drop, and sleep wherever he is:

And he just generally spreads joy and smiles everywhere he goes!  I can't imagine life without my Tommy!

We had a fun little party for him.  Let's see if I can get some YouTube videos linked up here:

I love you, Thomas!  You're extraordinary and wonderful!!

Just discovered your blog today. Love your writing. Am getting ready to buy 100% cotton yarn to try my hand at your dishcloth pattern and have added your web url to my blog so I can check in on you occasionally.

Especially loved this: "Life is good, friends. It's not perfect. It's not tiday. But, it is good, and I'm so happy to be here!"

Keep up the great work!
