No, I haven't forgotten about sharing with you what I did each day for my Birthday month. It's just that I have been some much needed time away from my computer and phone, therefore I wasn't keeping everyone up to date. Shall I finish off the month for you? Some items I forgot to take pictures of, but here it goes:

Day 14: I went to church (which is a huge blessing in these times) and I was able to finish two really amazing books.

Day 17: Yes, I realize there were a couple of skipped days there. There was some stress and I simply forgot to do things for my birthday. However, a day at the water park was just awesome.

Day 18: I spent most of the day working on a quilt. It was pretty cool.

Day 19: Our young-adults group met for the first time in a few months! It was amazing!

Day 20: I woke up to the most amazing rainbow. Which was pretty awesome and I finally got to watch the rest of The Chosen series. If you haven't seen this series about the life of Christ, please go watch it now! You can find it HERE.

Day 21 and 22: On Sunday I went out to lunch with my family (so much fun) and made myself a special meal on Monday.

Day 23: Mom has a tradition of taking each of the girls out for lunch for our birthday. We went out to one of our favorite Mexican food restaurants. 

Day 24: I was very happy to be off work for the week. Even though I had a few things I needed to get done, I spent most of the day writing.

Day 25: I made tomato sauce! Yes, it was a lot of work, but I love turning things in the garden into stores for the future. 

Day 26: Because of work schedules of some of my siblings, this was the evening we were all home so they gave me my gifts

Day 27 and 28: The 27th I had a couple of friends over and we played board games and had fajitas. I'm sad I forgot to take photos. 28th was a nice, relaxing Sunday with lunch at a Mexican food restaurant. 

Day 29: More sauce making. We had a lot of tomatoes.

Birthday Day!!!
My sisters and I chilled at the waterpark. It was perfect weather for it. Then we came home, ate pizza, and watched Swiss Family Robinson. 

So there you have it my birthday month!

These last couple of weeks, I haven't read a lot of books. Some of it is that I read two spectacular fiction books and I have a book hangover. I've also listened to a lot of scripture. I've been so hungry for the word of God, that most other books just don't have much appeal to me.

Nicole Sager is a favorite author of mine. I was so excited to read this book. I read it over two days and was sad when I had to stop to sleep.

This book... I love Sarah Sundin so much. She is one of my favorite authors ever! This book was another great one by her. 

I love Kelsey's writing. While this story is for kids, I really enjoyed it. The audiobook was great.

I reread this book. Actually, I read it almost exactly a year ago. It was a much-needed reminder.

I love this series so much. This book was filled with so many needed reminders. The audiobook was great.
