Candles, Cake and Me

Last friday was my 36th birthday.  And to celebrate we invited some friends over to our house for a low key pizza dinner and some beverages.  One of my friends showed up with a yummy dessert (she had found on my Pinterest board ~ you can read my review of it here) She lit that baby up (I think there were only 18 candles on it ~ we didn't want to start a house fire!)  "happy birthday" was sung, I made a wish and blew out all of the candles.  I am so blessed to have such wonderful and thoughtful people in my life!
(Sassy took these pictures and had some funky settings on the camera ~ oops ☺)

I was perusing Pinterest the other day and came across this quote.  It seemed very fitting and I LOVE the sentiment!  I try to not let age bother me.  After all it is just a number!  There were even a few years that I didn't know how old I was.  When I would go to the doctor, I actually had to do the math to figure out my age.  So friends, remember to seize each day ~ you will never get it back!

Carpe Diem!

Love that quote! And, Happy Birthday! It looks like times have been good. I am dying to try your 'natural detox' water and that stir fry! We are swimmin' in green beans and I love shrimp! Yum!
