    Musings: My First Disneyland Birthday

    It only took me 36 years… Thanks, parentals 😉 HAHA, JK, I’m totally kidding. I am so beyond blessed and spoiled by my parents, this is TOTALLY a joke! But, now I know why we generally didn’t go to Disneyland for my birthday. March in Anaheim is sketchy. Like, are you going to dump buckets or are you going to be warm and sunny? The week before we left I was looking at the weather app each day, possibly multiple times a day. All I kept seeing was the rain emoji for Sunday and cloudy for Monday. Nothing I could do about it, except for plan my outfits accordingly. Months…

    Merry, merry..

    And like that it’s done! The presence of my family, happy and healthy, is truly the greatest present I can receive. It’s one that cannot be bought, but only hoped for. Don’t get me wrong, real, tangible presents are great too – but being surrounded by loved ones goes much further than any actual present will! Work let us off really early on Christmas eve, so I got my eyebrows and hair done. Gotta look pretty for the big day 🙂 Then I finished some quick shopping, yes, I survived the grocery store and Target on Christmas eve!! With plenty of time to spare, I came home opened a bottle…
