Celebrating my birthday AND ANOTHER BIG SURPRISE!

Celebrating my birthday AND ANOTHER BIG SURPRISE!
It's my birthday today!  I'm a big fan of birthdays.  I feel super grateful to have lived another year.

Just like when I was a kid and my mom made cupcakes to celebrate my birthday with the whole elementary school class, it is the Compliment tradition to celebrate my birthday with all of you, too!


But first, I want to let you in on a little secret.


Nick and I started celebrating few months ago, because...



  
Yep!  We are expecting!  (Which is the reason why you haven't heard much from me in the last several weeks-- making a human is exhausting, I've learned!)

We've been waiting for this moment for a really, really long time and are feeling so totally blessed with this gift.  We can't wait to meet our little peanut!



This is a special day for my family.  A special week.  A special year.  

But aren't they all in their own ways for all of us?  Don't we always, no matter how bleak the situation, have something worth celebrating?  If not just for the gift of another day?

As is Compliment tradition, I'm celebrating by encouraging you to spread more love.

Start thinking now, who in your life could use some encouragement or some extra sunshine?  Who could use some extra motivation or encouragement?

Because what better way to celebrate being alive, than by being there for each other?  

If there's ever been a time to #givemorecompliments -- even to yourself--now is the time!  


Celebrating ALL our days,
