Perfect Moment Mondays

My birthday was not my best day ever. Between work insanity, Dad stuff, the craziness going on at home, and the fact that I turned 30 (which really bothered me more than it should have)... well, let's be honest... I haven't had my best day ever in quite a while.

So when I got home, I was ready to just go to bed. I was exhausted, and wanted to shut my head off for as long as I could.

Until I walked in the door.

The Grumps had made me a card, found a candle (a really really REALLY old emergency candle lol) to light, and set out a brownie as my "birthday cake".

It was ridiculously cheesy in all it's child-like glory, but it was exactly what I needed. It warmed my heart, and my soul, and brought a much needed smile to my face.

The simple gestures can be the most meaningful.

Happy birthday, Beth!

Wishing you a wonderful year (and beyond).

Awesome. Grumps rocks. Glad he turned your day around!

Coming home to someone else in the house is great enough, but a brownie...perfect :)

I had a hard time with 30, too. Anyhow, don't let anyone make you feed guilty for how you feel about turning 30! (you know, telling you "just wait until...")

Awww yay for Grumps. That was very sweet. Turning 230 is an AMAZING thing! I'm 32, almost 33 and I've never been more sure of who I am. It's a great journey, truly.
Hugs,
