Mothers and A Birthday

I spent the great majority of the weekend with my family, which seemed quite fitting since it was both Mother's Day and my birthday weekend. I honestly wouldn't have had it any other way.

My mom is truly one of my best friends so I didn't mind sharing my day with her one bit, in fact, it probably made the day a bit more special. We had an incredibly low key weekend -- watching movies, enjoying the beautiful (but a bit cool) weather, and spending the majority of Sunday with our whole family. Between my mom's sisters and my grandparents (and a few of my aunt's neighbors) there was enough food to feed a small army and a bevy of delicious desserts.

While I have some friends who mark birthday's with big, elaborate gatherings, I much rather the day pass quietly. Several calls, texts, facebook and twitter messages from friends made the day special. I may have skipped the candles a top a cake and my family singing part of the day but I do have a few wishes for the up coming year.

One of my goals for my next year includes being more bold in every aspect of life. I want to further step away from my comfortable confines, pushing my boundaries and becoming more of the person I want to be. Whether it be further exploring a career in freelance or wearing red lipstick, I'm determined to step out and make this year a great one.

I hope you all had a fabulous Mother's Day. Tell me, how did you spend your weekend?
