One Year Older,

yet somehow I don't feel any wiser.  Is that how it goes?  The longer you live, the more you realize you just don't know?  Don't tell my children.  
I won't tell you how old I am, but I'll give you this hint.  There's a three.  Maybe two of them.
Ryan was out of town on my birthday, so Azure brought me my morning appetizer in bed: a smattering of cereal in the toy kitchen muffin tin,
and then, after about 1/2 an hour waiting in bed, Olive brought me breakfast.
Yes, that's a container of lemon juice.  It was delightful.
When the master of the house returned, he made a proper birthday feast of asparagus soup; fresh mozzarella with tomatoes, basil, and balsamic vinegar; cold strawberry soup; anything orange he could find;
and homemade caramel infused chocolate cupcakes.
I had a hard time trying to come up with something to wish for because I'm pretty blessed, what more could I wish for?
I opened gifts wrapped in blankies,
and enjoyed hugs from little arms.
A Happy Day, indeed.

  3. Happy birthday! when you said two threes, the first numbers in my head were 32 or 60! 33's a good medium :)

  4. Happy birthday - it seems as though you had a wonderful celebration. A three with a three. Sigh. I'd be happy to have a six with a six.

  28. Ah, Katy, your birthday looked like it was filled with lots of love. Your breakfasts in bed were thoughtfully put together. I loved the muffin tins with a variety of cereal. The girls are as creative as you are. Ryan knows how to fix a gourmet meal and mouth-watering desserts. You are a beautiful and radiant young mother of six. You are an inspiration. I loved the photos. Happy Birthday!!!
