But wait, before you start feeling sorry for me, please know I had a great birthday celebration this year. My husband and in-laws spoiled me and made sure I wasn't forgotten. It was just the actual day that wasn't that exciting. My kids decided today was the day to fight a lot.
But hey, if there is anything you start learning with age, it's that not EVERY birthday is going to be amazing. There will be good ones, and some boring, frustrating ones. Life goes on.
So, tonight I decided to do something productive with my birthday. I made myself a little "Happy Place". A place where I can curl up with a good book, and a cup of warm tea, and a cozy blanket and just "be".
The fact that I am thinking about "cozying up" is ridiculous. This week was one of the hottest weeks we've had all Summer. As a Canadian you try to not complain about the heat, because you know that winter will come soon and it will be LONG. But I reached my breaking point on the heat this week. My body was not handling it well. I felt sick, grumpy, and and basically hating the world. So yeah, thinking about needing to cozy up because i am cold sounds really good right about now.
Anyways, here are some pictures of my little "me" spot. Haha...who am i kidding? The minute I sit down in that chair I will have three kids climbing all over me.
Try to ignore the paint on the walls. My living room...okay, my whole house, is in desperate need of a paint job. I'll get around to it...eventually. ;)
I am by no means skilled in the "perfect home decor" category, but am learning how to make my home fit my personality and be the place I feel most comfortable in. I hope to enjoy my little corner many nights this Fall and Winter! I also hope to keep that new plant alive. I don't have a really good track record for gardening, and I kill potted flowers way too quickly. We'll see if this one survives my "black thumb".
What about you? Do you have your own little "happy" place?
Peace & Love. :)
