Thankful Thursdays ~ Birthday Celebrations

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

My birthday was Thursday and I tried to post but could never get in between my celebrations….. Better late than never! LOL!!

I wasn’t sure how I’d feel celebrating my first birthday since Gene passed away last year. 29 years of having him here on my birthday is a long time. However my kids, grand-kids, friends, neighbors and colleagues made it a special day! When I opened the door to go on my early morning walk my yard was decorated with yard cards!


My favorite white roses were delivered in the morning sent from my kids and grand kids! They all came over for a pool party celebration with chicken enchiladas, fajitas from Chuy’s with guacamole and queso! We knew Gene was with us smiling at all the antics of the kids. Beautiful Beckett and Handsome Hudson saw no need for Nana, her son and daughter to have a picture by themselves! I am blessed with the best family.
