This weekend was fantastic. My darling husband threw me a surprise birthday party with all of my closest friends and family. It was a true SURPRISE which was fantastic. It was also my first ever surprise birthday party! I have had surprise showers, which were awesome, but this was the first time it was just for me - just because something was happening to/for me!
I don't normally like surprises, but he did a great job. He set it up at our favorite restaurant, got a ton of our wedding flowers, got our friends and family to attend, and he even had a paper invitation!!! (applause for him inserted here!)
It was a big birthday and it made me do a bit of a life review. I was thinking about where I am today compared to where I thought I was going to be and where I am going to be in 10 years.
Things aren't perfect, but when I take a look at the big things - I think I've done pretty good so far, graduated from college and grad school, married to a fabulous man, 2 gorgeous baby girls, a good job at a leading organization, fantastic friends, good relationships with family, and days away from launching my first website (crossed fingers).
In ten years I have no idea where I'll be, but I hope I'll look back and be as happy with where I've been as I am today.
