I’m officially 29 forever.

I feel like birthdays should be more a celebration of the parents than the child…I’m so grateful that my parents chose life for me. 29 years later I’m a wife and mama, and couldn’t be more thankful for another year surrounded by the people that make me the happiest. Today was simple… a trip to the grocery store, a little time in the pool, a few dirty diapers, a couple toddler meltdowns, some tacos & queso, lots of messes, but even more kisses… the perfect day, and really all I’ve ever wanted in life. In other news, I guess I’m officially 29 and holding from here on out.

I’ve been hoarding this sweet little arrow turban for y’all for awhile, and I think today is the perfect day to pass a little celebration around. 😉 Leave me a comment here on this post about someone that you’re grateful for in life, and I’ll surprise one of you with some happy mail. You can get a bonus entry by posting the same comment on my corresponding instagram post (@AbbeyDraaBlog). Lori is a sweet friend of mine with the cutest little shop full of turbans, scarves, bags, etc. Check out her shop here. Yummy toddler toes not included.


Daddy & Momma, today is all about you… thanks for being my biggest cheerleaders, and the truest examples of all that is good. Most of all, thank you for choosing life. I’m so proud to be yours.
