My Birthday Present from Magnolia Market

close up

Usually, birthdays are amazing, exciting moments for me. Last month my boys made me beautiful cards and put them on my pillow so that I would see them when I woke up. My parents and in-laws sent my mad money to buy something special. My hubby asked and asked and asked what I wanted for my birthday dinner.

However; this year I had no clue. In fact, I really wasn't hungry.

I'm not sure what it was, but this year, I really wasn't into the whole birthday celebration.


Maybe it is because I am trying to become more minimalist and not have things just for the sake of having things.

Maybe it is because we are doing a full on kitchen renovation {more on that later} and I have been too excited about those decisions to think about birthday cake.

Or maybe, it's because I am now 39.

You think I am nuts. 

Coo- Coo.

Crazy as a loon.

You are thinking....39 is so young. What are you complaining about? You have your health, an amazing career, an awesome family. Just be quiet and sit down.

I hear you.

 I really do.

I have nothing to complain about.


It's just that I have loved my thirties so much.  I do not want them to end.

I realize I need to make a few Miner adjustments. So, everyday when I  look at my little piece of Joanna Gaines - Fixer Upper - Magnolia Markets - slice of heaven - birthday present that I got from my hubby to remind myself that...
today is a good day for a good day.

And then maybe....just maybe...I'll enjoy this last year of my thirties so much that 40 will rock!

P.S. My hubby is a genius. I was wondering how we would keep the rope from fraying after cutting it and tying it in a knot.  This is what he came up with....
  • Wet a paper towel and place it around the knot so the flame will not travel.
  • Then light the edges for a second or two then blow it out.  
  • rope collage

  1. I felt that way about my birthday this year, too. I turned 45 this summer. I wasn't sad about my birthday, I just couldn't think of anything I wanted. I think I'm getting to the point where I have all I need. I am with you on clearing things out- clutter just weighs you down!
