Winter Wonderland + Birthday Reflections

• By

Hey loves!

Last week Saturday was my birthday and while I had planned on getting all cute to head out to dinner with my husband, Mother Nature had other plans.  Atlanta was hit with 4+ inches of snow the day before, which is a lot in this part of the country, some areas got much more than that.

After a slightly nerve-racking two hour drive home that evening, I was beyond tired and any chance of finding some last-minute outfit pieces were out of the question.  The morning of my birthday, the power was out and the snow was still coming down! Any plans for a dinner or anything were out of the question.  I was just grateful to be safe at home with my husband and son.

We decided to take Benjamin outside for a little to snap a few pics and let him see snow for the first time.

When your husband is a photographer, you just learn to take pics even when you don’t think your eyebrows look right and your hair is not done, and hope for the best.

As low key as this birthday was, it was one of my best ones ever. I am excited about all of the great changes to come and I am overwhelmed with gratitude when I think about how blessed I am to have a great husband, our miracle baby, health, and my right mind.

The snow on that day was icing on the cake because it reminded me of when I was growing up in New York and it would snow during the holiday season.  Learning to live in the moment has really changed my life for the better.  God has truly blessed me!
