Another kit from The Digi Files are revealed at The Daily Digi today, and I made a birthday scrapbook page with it.I love all the happy colors and thought it captured the feeling of my birthday celebration really well (rain and all!).
Here are the words:
I love celebrating my birthday. I think I have loved it since I was a little girl. Back then it was all about getting one year older, getting bigger and more independent. Now it’s all about feeling the gratitude about my life, celebrating another year of sweet memories with family and friends.
Every 5 years I invite to birthday party @ The Farm, on my 40th birthday this July I did it again. And, wow, our (extended) family have grown so much, at least on my mother’s side, so the list of people to invite got longer than before – the weather forecast told me rain was to be expected and it was a challenge finding room for all of them – but what a sweet challenge it was since everyone wanted to come!
It was such a lovely day. I wished all of my friends could have been there too, but so grateful for the ones able to attend. I love truly this tradition – and I look forward to another big celebration in five years. Wonder how my family have grown and changed by then….
Thanks for looking 🙂
