The Big 32!

Today is a special day of sorts...For one I actually showered and put on makeup today! Two, it's the first day of March which means Spring is on it's way. And three, it's my birthday!
For the last few years, birthdays have not been as big of deal to me as they used to be. I can remember reminding people for weeks that my birthday was coming up, or spend months planning some sort of birthday outing. Perhaps this is only for the 20 somethings now. Not the 32'ers? Either way...I've had no complaints about my 32 years of life, other then the occasional teenage life altering, ya...Happy Birthday to me!

While I have no big plans today other then maybe a couple loads of laundry, I am kind of anticipating what will happen tonight, as Mike told me not to worry about mind has been wandering around all sorts of scenarios. All of which I have probably built up into something bigger then it will be...don't you hate when your mind does that?!
so very true

As some of you know the last three or so weeks have been kinda blah around here, I've mentioned on my blog a few times that I'm just not feeling 'it', whatever that 'it' is. I haven't really been motivated to do much of anything other then browse the internet and read all of your blogs. When it came to writing anything meaningful or making anything special, my heart just hasn't been in it. I've been thinking and planning of things, but I just can't seem to do it....even picking up my camera! Sure, I've taken some photos, but nothing has come of it. I think the February blahs have a lot to do with it and I am hoping this feeling soon goes away. So I can get back to doing things that once filed that creative void. Like blogging...I feel as though my posts lately have been...meh. My Etsy shop is sitting there but I haven't really done anything with it lately. I know that some of these feelings maybe have to do with getting older AND with Westyn turning ONE in just a little over a is just flying by and I don't think that I am enjoying it all that much lately. Everything is a rush. But I have no idea how to slow down cause I've just been stuck in the same routine for almost a year now. I'm constantly searching for that other thing, that something that completes life, that makes it worthwhile and the truth is, is that I have it. I have my life. My life is good. So why am I looking for other pieces? I don't have the answers that I'm looking for, and I probably never will, so I should stop analyzing everything and move on, right? 

I am hoping March brings me out of this wintertime coma as I have lots of great plans brewing in my mind. I can't wait to share them with you if I ever get around to doing them!! One of the things I would like to update you all on is my decision involving returning back to work and just what the heck I will be doing in regards to my post here. I had such tremendous feedback from all of you and I can't wait to plan and talk about those things. I am also going to be focusing on all things SPRING! New beginnings, greener grass, a more colorful life...including another blog design. Yes, I know I just started the New Year with a redesign...but it's my blog and I can do what I like, right? I am bored with this one already and really, I'm kinda sick of seeing my face every time I preview a post. LOL!

So...happy March. I'm going to be taking a couple days off to unplug, rejuvenate and have some quality family time and then I hopefully will be back before you even know I'm gone! Oh, and while your here, go on over to my pretty sidebar and say hi to my new Sponsors!

I hope you had a wonderful Birthday!!! I turned 31 this year and it was such a different birthday for me - like that was the first time I didn't want to get any older. Maybe it's because I have a kid now and I want time to slow down - I'm not sure :). I'm liking your new blog design!
