That's right today is my birthday and I'm celebrating!  It's such a huge blessing to have the opportunity to commemorate another year of life.  So, I thought I would share a list of what other things I'm celebrating in addition to today being my Born Day!

28 Things I'm Celebrating Today
1: Family-  This numero uno on my list because I know so many people who don't have family whether by death, separation, etc.  I'm beyond blessed to have a family that loves me and cherishes me as much as I love and cherish them.

2: Creativity-  Needless to say without creativity, I wouldn't be writing this blog post.  I definitely wouldn't be writing my novel.  Being creative has always been my outlet.  My way to let go of stress, blow off steam and more.

3: Life- Oh what a beautiful thing!  To not celebrate having the opportunity to be alive another day is a crime.

4: Books-  I love reading.  It's my to escape and see different parts of the world, explore different dimensions and connect with complete strangers.

5: Food- Food and I have a bit of a love affair.  I'm not ashamed to admit that I enjoy eating to highest.  I also love cooking and being the kitchen, especially with my family.  We laugh, talk and create.

6: Book Title-  I've been working on my novel for some time now.  I was really starting to stress over not having decided on title because without one it just so unofficial.  But I'm happy to report that as of yesterday, I have an official title!

7: Friends- Unlike family, we get to choose our friends and I am blessed to have some great ones!

8: Faith- It's the essences of things unseen, but hoped for.  My faith has seen me through a lot rough times.

9: Love-  We all need it, crave it and want it!

10: Support- It's always nice to have someone in your corner.

11: Music-  I don't play any instruments, but I do enjoy singing along to the radio!

12: Computers-  My laptop died and I started writing the rest of my novel chapters out by hand.  Let me tell you, don't take having a computer for granted.  I'm back in business now, but oh boy do I have a lot of stuff to type up!

13: Social Media-  Sometimes, we give social media a bad wrap when we misuse it.  However, used correctly and you find all kinds of hidden treasures and resources on social media.

14: Happiness- Ain't nobody got time for being sad!

15: Cooking-  It's another way to escape and unwind with my loved ones.

16: Fall TV-  I'm not a huge fan of summertime television shows.  However, when Fall rolls around you catch me glued to television watching shows like The Vampire Diaries.

17: Movies- So many good movies coming out on the big screen that I want to see. They make laugh and they make me cry.

18: Shelter- So grateful to have a roof over my head.  So, many people went to sleep at a homeless shelfter tonight or worst outside in the elements.

19: Sleep-  I've been running low on it these last couple of days, but it's still good.

20: Giving Back- Touching a life is the most amazing feeling in the world.

21: Unexpected Blessings- Nothing like having a wonderful surprise drop in your lap out of the blue.

22: Fashion- Fashion is also another one of my great loves.  I could spend hours flipping through the covers of Vogue Magazine.

23:  Coca-Cola- I must have been born with a Sprite drip in my arm because I love Sprite.  

24: Car- Public transportation doesn't run everywhere.  So, it's nice to have car to able to visit all of those places.

25: Nature- I went to Lake Junaluska once.  Let me tell you, the nature scenes there are breathtaking.  Just something about surrounded by nature that reminds me there is a higher power.

26: Toys- As I get closer to finishing my manuscript, distractions will not be wanted. As a parent, that kind of comes with the territory.  Thank goodness for toys to keep them somewhat occupied though.

27:  Inspiration- When inspiration hits me, I feel like doing a little jig.

28: God- Without Him, we wouldn't be here!

Until Next Time,
