Happy Birthday

SO I am taking a couple of days away from blog land.  Official days because I am aware I have not been as regular in my posting as I would like... sometimes life just takes over...It's that time of year, the time of year I think about the best gift in the world to me, becoming a mother, not once but twice.  My children's birthdays are a day and two minutes apart, oh yes and a few years.....Its an exciting time, lots of giddiness in the home, and counting down the sleeps to the birthday celebrations....Hiding parcels, pretty paper for wrapping, baking and sewing up a storm....
It is also a time of great reflection, a bitter sweet time as I mark the passing of the years as I watch my babies grow up in their own individual ways.  How blessed I am to have such great guys that really are the best of friends and long may it continue.


Its right that I mention my children in my blog for if it was not for these two little people this creative side of mine would not have been revealed.  They are my inspiration, the very reason I get up in the morning, they fill my heart with such joy, the overwhelming feeling of love for them just takes my breath away.  I made these two little people, I grew them within my body, I gave birth to them in to this world of ours, I nurtured them with my milk, I taught them to walk and talk. They are individuals with distinct characters of there own.  Yes birthdays are a time for reflection, connection and awe inspiring amazement.... 

Happy Birthday my guys... in my humble opinion you are the BEST!!!
