The First Time I Turned 29

Monday, October 22, 2012

My birthday was Saturday. And per the title, it is the first time I turned 29 . . . we'll see what number I celebrate next year.

I wasn't sure to approach my birthday on the blog, as well, it wasn't the greatest. On paper it didn't appear it would be, as I had an engagement session scheduled, plus a 6 hour wedding, but I was still convinced my birthday could still be celebrated adequately.

I didn't account for a fight between Tony and I just as I was leaving for my wedding.

Yup.

That'll about crush any chance at a good birthday. Eight plus hours of work and a fight with your best friend? Again, not a chance.

Thankfully, both the engagement session and the wedding went swimmingly well!

When I returned home Tony apologized, there were cards, cake options, a present and a stubborn boy who refused to sing happy birthday to me. We celebrated my birthday for a bit as we indulged [even though I'd eaten clean all week, including my birthday on the job].

I listened to the baby's heart beat on the doppler before going to bed. 156 bpm. That and perspective were the best part of my day.

Here's to the rest of the year being better. :)

Happy belated birthday! Sorry it was a crummy day but it sounds like it was redeemed a bit :)

Glad it ended on a high note at least. I've found that not all anniversaries and birthdays are going to be perfect, but they are what they are ad you can try to make the most of them. Happy Birthday! 30 is not so bad. I'm enjoying 30 so far!

I didn't get a chance to wish you happy birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEAH! Sorry it wasn't the greatest birthday, but as you said, hopefully the rest of the year will more than make up for that. ;)

Happy (belated) Birthday!

I'm so sorry the day didn't go quite as planned or as you were probably hoping--that's just the worst! I think if I were you, I'd want a do-over ;)
