We plan parties, make gift wishlists, and make cakes for our kids. But, what about us?
I have a very good friend who always takes the day off for her birthday (yes, even as a working mom) . She may go see a movie, go to the spa, even enjoy a nice lunch. But, she always takes the day off for herself. I have secretly been jealous of her planning and celebration of herself. If that inspires you, I recently posted a list of gift ideas for moms. You could treat yourself to any of those items.
My birthday falls on a Tuesday this year. (It’s tomorrow, if you were wondering 😉 ) Thankfully, it’s a day I normally don’t work. And, thankfully, both of my kids will be in school, for most of the day. So, I plan to indulge as much as I can.

A former boss would ask us each on our birthday: “what’s the best thing…?” and “what’s the worst thing…?” that has happened since your last birthday. Most years were unremarkable.
This year I would say that the worst thing was my surprising unemployment and all of the life changes that came with it. The best thing was recently getting a new part time job that allows me the flexibility to grow this blog, learn more about marketing/writing/and blogging, and the freedom to do so. I am happy to say I have come full circle.
