It's hard to put into words what I felt about this year's birthday. Celebration-wise, I made out like a bandit. I got to have cake and ice cream at Mom and Dad's, with one of my besties, Stephanie, as well as lunch with my El Paso crew. Not to mention a hubby and children who spoiled me rotten.
But emotionally, I had a hard time. My mom, Monica, was 29 when she passed away. And this year I felt the significance of just how young she was. So this year's birthday was a little bittersweet.
I was, however, able to get some good pictures of family that I didn't get a lot of during Christmas.
Strike a pose!
