Thirty Three

Dear Maggie,

It has been a really long time since I wrote to you. I’m sorry I am not so diligent in keeping this blog alive anymore. Probably because of the fact that you are starting Kindergarten tomorrow, I just felt that I had to devote all of my time with you. Plus, since it’s summer, there’s the swimming pool, the splash parks, the road trips, the barbecue parties, and so on that we couldn’t ignore.

Today I turn 33! It is a quiet birthday. I disabled the “post on timeline” option on my Facebook wall so not a lot of people know about it. I appreciate those who sent me private messages because they did remember; they’re actually my favorite people so that has already made the day special. I have nothing but love and gratitude in my heart for having another year to live and cherish!

Your Dad’s first ever birthday gift to me was a really simple card. I was 19. I didn’t get anything from him today, but three weeks ago (he couldn’t wait for today), he surprised us with a new car! I guess that’ll also be this year’s Christmas gift! Haha! 

Life is beautiful, Maggie. It really is.

With all my love,

Mommy

Maggie wouldn’t take off these tap shoes! They came in the mail with a bunch of colorful dresses, which we all love. Big thanks to her Tumblr fairy godmother! 💓

Our KitKat cookies turned out really good! We followed this recipe, except that we used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour. 
Sometimes, occasionally, it’s okay to have cookies and milk for lunch, right? Haha!
