Today is just another day. A Tuesday.

But it's also a birthday of our wedding day -
my best explanation to my girls about our anniversary.

"Well, can we come to your anniversary?"

I started making dinner of chicken kabobs and rice
and the girls set the table together as a team.

I continued working in the kitchen.

The girls disappeared into the living room
working quietly on a secret project.

"I wish we were having cake."

I overheard their conversation.
Perhaps the birthday reference triggered that thought.

And so, lucky year 13, celebrated at home.

We had the best dates ever, our girls
and they came with sweet gifts.

Look at us with rosy, round cheeks!
(And I love the th13 ... close right? 13th)

P. loves to write, write, write! She also loves to draw family pictures without her sister ...

M. loves her Mommy!
She used purple for my favorite color and the face and rainbow pop out!


  1. Happy Anniversary! P's list of "love" is adorable.

  2. Gifts from the heart for a special day-how sweet! Congratulations, Michelle.

  3. Happy Anniversary! What a special way to celebrate!
    Their gifts are adorable.

    I just noticed the caption where you wrote that she likes to leave her sister out of the family pictures! :0)

Slice of Life  hosted  at the Two Writing Teachers Join in and share a slice of your life. Last Saturday morning, I didn't need to wake up early.  I wanted to go back to sleep.  But instead my brain was awake and thinking.  Creating this list.  Writing this post.   Many of us are embarking on an adventure - the Slice of Life Story Challenge.  Writing, sharing, and commenting for thirty-one days in March.

March Slice of Life Story Challenge  hosted  at the  Two Writing Teachers Join us for a month of writing! After two days of writing struggles, I was slowing moving out of the writer's block quicksand that was sucking me into that stuck world of "I don't wanna write." I wrote a different post for today.  I was ready to press on with this challenge.  I did not fear the orange publish button.  I was going to just write. Then throughout the evening, I read the comments from my slice from yesterday: struggle . I had tears in my eyes.  I had goosebumps reading the comments other slicers, writers, teachers, mothers, friends wrote for little ole me and my writing struggles. Thank you for sharing in my
