I didn't have cupcakes on my birthday - we had a fabulous cake - made by the same wonderful woman who did our "Forever Family" cake back in June. To say it was delicious is the understatement of the year.
Last year for my 35th birthday, Irish Boy got me a MacBook Pro. In fact this very blog post is being typed on it.
This year's birthday wasn't nearly as extravagant. Except for the fact that we had two little girls with us - and I had cards meant just for me with the words "Mommy" on them.
What a difference a year makes.
