I’m starting to plan my birthday weekend. It’s never fun having a holiday birthday, you always have to have turkey with your cake and none of your friends wanna hang out because they are having to spend time with their family… well that’s how it used to be.

Now that we are all grown up and a military family, most of our close friends have no family around so we are always grouping them together to make them feel welcomed and loved.

So you wanna know what I’m doing for my birthday?! My husband, kiddo and both puppies, along with a group of friends are renting a cabin in the red woods for a few days!

I see lots of hiking, drinking and writing in my future!
