God Gave Me 13...and still more to come

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Today, I'm 13.

God gave me thirteen whole years of living in His grace, and I hope I'll have many, many more to come.

Today was a wonderful day - almost everybody I know stopped me and gave me a birthday hug. I feel warm, wonderful, and very loved. :)

For my birthday, I'd thought I'd go ahead and let you all tell me thirteen things you like to do on your birthday. Here are mine...

  1. Smile - scratch that - grin. :)
  2. Dance around the house like it's my last day.
  3. Sing all my favorite songs.
  4. Write (filled two more 8x11 pages for my notes for NaNo)
  5. Paint my nails.
  6. Experiment with new hairstyles.
  7. Take lots of pictures {this is actually an every day thing as well. :)}
  8. Eat yummy foods. (read: chocolate covered marshmallows)
  9. See my friends.
  10. Drink tea while writing blog posts (which I'm doing now, by the way. Ever had Lemon Lift? It's fantastic)
  11. Wake up early and see the sun rise.
  12. Wear boots (yup, it's that time of year again!)
  13. Hug everybody. :)
Hugs to you all!

P.S. Aeronautical Graphics will not be accepting any orders for the month of November, as I am doing NaNoWriMo, and simply will not have the time. :( Very sorry, friends!
