A Birthday Celebration

The timing worked out great for today's Celebrate the Small Things post.  Today is my birthday! Yay me! I'm not one of those women who gets caught up on age or who wishes to stay 29 forever.  Nope.  Last year I turned thirty and was thrilled.  Today I am thirty-one, and that doesn't bother me at all.

The truth is sometimes I still act like a teenager.  Not in that drama-seeking kind of way but in that goofy kind of way.  I like to be silly sometimes.  And if people find me to be immature, that's their problem, not mine.  Being silly keeps me feeling young, and that's more important than being concerned with my actual age. 

So what am I doing to celebrate? Working.  I know, not exactly exciting.  However, tomorrow I will be spending the day with family, and we will be going out to dinner.  My dad and I share the same birthday (he likes to say I was his birthday present) and we always celebrate together.  Joinging us will be my husband, my mom, several aunts and uncles and cousins.  It'll be a good time.

So what are you celebrating today? Share below!


  1. Happy (slightly late) birthday! Very cool time of year for a birthday, too

  2. Happy Birthday from me, too! I'm celebrating a beautifully sunny day and a long walk.

    1. Thank you! We actually have snow today, which shouldn't be unusual. I can't remember the last time we had snow on my birthday, though. :)

  3. Happy belated birthday! (to you and your dad)
    Have a wonderful dinner with the family, hey? and yay for being silly... what's life if you can't fun? ;)

  4. Happy Birthday, Charity! Being 'silly' occasionally is a great way to stay young. Life can be too serious sometimes. Have loads of fun with your family x

    I will be posting my March Birthstone post over the weekend so check it out if you get chance!

  5. Happy BIRTHDAY! Have a great weekend! :)

  6. A happy grand very birthday wish to you! I love your attitude. I love my age each year, even while it there's more and more things that take about a minute to remember! That just adds to my charm!

  7. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that
    you need to publish more about this topic, it might
    not be a taboo subject but usually folks don't talk about these issues. To the next! Kind regards!!

  8. How wonderful! Happy Birthday to you and your father! I hope you have a great time and get lots of nice presents! :-)

  9. I do believe all the ideas you have presented on your post.
    They're very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for starters. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

  10. Happy Birthday! ^_^
    Sounds like you had a fun day planned. Hope it was a good one.

    It's a relief to hear someone say something positive about turning 30 for a change. My time is coming up next year.

  11. Aw! Your father sounds so nice. Go ahead and act young. More people should :) Nice to meet you!

  12. Happy belated Birthday wishes to you! Many happy returns too.

    Heading offline for now, but picked a good day to scroll right down my blogroll and catch up with some terrific people in this world. Am glad I did.


  13. Happy belated birthday! I'm a March baby too--I'll be 32 this year.

    Hope you had a great day with your family! :)

  14. Birthday's are the best things to celebrate! Happy Birthday!

  15. 31 is a great age!
