Turning 31

Today I turn 31.
My 30th year was a great one.
Full of unexpected twists and turns, and yet I felt at peace knowing God had precisely orchestrated each part.
I don't have a birthday wish list this year.
As cliche as it sounds, this girl has been given the best gifts already. A husband and children that adore me and accept me for who I am and enable me to live my life to the fullest. I have a Father in Heaven that adores me even more.
We bought our first home this year; a dreamy little cottage; and each night I get
to lay my head on the biggest, softest pillowtop mattress ever!
I wake up each morning with my cup of coffee and smoothie and indulge most nights with a glass of red wine.
My husband is my best friend and we spend hours talking and dreaming together.
So really~ in the grand scheme of things~ I couldn't even imagine what to ask for.
BUT if anyone feels generous; I am still hoping for a couple of chickens :)
My only hope is to end this birthday with homemade pizza, cookies, and some family cuddle time on the couch (and maybe a few episodes of Gilmore Girls thrown in there somewhere during pizza and cookies!)


  1. Happy (late) birthday, Megan.

    I've only known you a short time but really value your friendship. Thanks for being a great example to me!

    When Garrett gets chickens (we'll see). we'll pick up a couple extra for you! There is a chicken swap or something in Frankfort in July he wants to go to.

  2. Thanks gals! Alyssa~We'll definitely have to figure out a chicken plan :)
    And by the way- I totally meant to call you this week but I am a dork and never programmed your # into my phone when you called last!
    Thanks for the sweet words. We are so grateful to have met you, Garrett and the boys.

  3. A bit late, but Happy Birthday! I hope it was a great one and you were able to eat some pizza.

  4. Happy Birthday a day late. Once I move to our family property I plan on getting some chickens. Cluck Cluck

  5. Happy (belated) birthday to you. Sounds like a wonderful day.

  6. Happy birthday!!! Sorry, I don't manage it earlier. I hope, you had a great birthday weekend with a lot of friends coming over and celebrating YOU!

  7. Happy Belated Birthday. It's wonderful that you have found so much peace in your life.

  8. Megan you are blessed and I love the picture of you with one of your little guys!!
