In my ultra-happy place!

Yesterday, my two youngest turned 19!! Wowza! Where did those years go?!

That event made my day an extra happy one. (I sometimes can't believe just how fortunate I am. I have 3 kids that I really enjoy spending time with.)

On my kids' birthdays, I have my own celebration throughout the day as I make preparations. Music blasting in the kitchen while making cupcakes, lots of singing and dancing. (Do you know how hard it is to get the cake batter into those small muffin papers, while dancing and singing?!! I wasn't exactly neat!)

And everywhere I went, I couldn't help but broadcast that the day was my girls' birthday. Most of the places I go, the clerks and employees all know my kids, and often ask how university is going, or how my oldest is enjoying his job. So, I couldn't help but share the current status of two of my kids.

I've been told that my happiness is infectious. I guess that I spread a little bit of Lili Happy everywhere I went yesterday.

I'll be back to frugal-living blogging again tomorrow. For now, you can picture me dancing in my kitchen. (My toes just can't stop tapping!)

    1. Hi Cat,
      I think their birthday was a good one (considering it fell during finals week)! The funny thing is, I vividly remember my own 19th birthday, and it doesn't seem super long ago. But it must've been!

  4. Kids' birthdays are so great for looking back on your life with them and enumerating all the things you love about them!

    1. Hi Anexacting,
      That's a good insight. I do tend to think more about all of their years, on their birthdays, and I think about who they will be, later in life.
