Kara Sewell: Happy Birthday To Me

I’m a fan of birthdays, I’m not necessarily a fan of getting older but I’m grateful for every year the good Lord grants me.

When I turned 8 years old my parents held my party at a chocolate factory, at 13 it was a surprise, progressive dinner party (different restaurant for each course) and for the big 1-8 my mom arranged for a limo to pick me and my friends up from school and ride around town in style. Needless to say, I have had some pretty stellar birthdays, no pressure on my poor husband of course.

This year I’m 33! Even as I type, I can’t believe it! And while I don’t think a limo will pick me up from work anytime soon, I have a lot to celebrate. I landed a new job, moved across country, bought my first car and threw out the first pitch at a Major League Baseball game this past year. So, I can’t wait to see what 33 will bring.

I like to set yearly goals, some I reach others I might not even come close but every year one goal stays the same: maintain a healthy lifestyle.

This year I am in good health and so is every member of my family (Praise God!) what more could I ask? My husband planned a surprise brunch with a few of my closest friends that included mimosas and a big ole piece of carrot cake. Rob & Frank bought me a piece of pottery from Rookwood; it’s a wishbone I have been eyeing for some time (what could be more fitting?) And I took a nice long nap! Oh my word, you know you’re 33 when one of the best parts of your birthday is a nap! Do you feel me?
