My 34th

Mid thirties, here I come!

Oh yeah, I am not one to shy away from mentioning my real age. For me, it's just a number. What's important is that those numbers are well-lived and enjoyed to the fullest.

I turned 34yo last Wednesday, almost two weeks after EJ's birthday. My birthday, after I gave birth to EJ, is almost a non-event now. I don't mind. I just want to have a quiet time with my family anyway.

But hubby insisted we have lunch with friends. So I invited Ate Elms and hubby's friends for lunch. We went to Trasak Paem, one of my favorite local restaurant.

Then, for dinner the three of us just went to Bistro Lorenzo. I was craving for their pork BBQ.

Before the day ended, I asked hubby to take pictures of us as souvenir of my 34th. Hahaha! We were all in a playful mood so here's the result of the after dinner pictorial at home. LOL!

Spell happy

We asked EJ to take a picture of hubby and I.

My boys. I love them so much!

This one is funny. I wanted a solo picture, but EJ ran and stuck this paper on my arms. Oh well :)

As you get older, birthday celebrations aren't as big as when you were younger. These days I am just content to have a nice time with my boys and a couple of friends. 

Hubby gave me dumbbells as present. He said it was a temporary gift. He'll buy the real gift when we are in Bangkok next week. Oh I can't wait! :)

So there you have it. My 34th.

I thank God for everything that I am and that I have. I am so blessed to have reached this age, to have a wonderful husband and a son who's a constant source of joy and pride. If I may be allowed to wish for more, it's good health for the three of us.
