Thankful Tuesday: Turning 31

I turned 31 last Friday. Thirty-one years has passed since my first cry. Ten years has passed since I became a legal adult.

The Husband and I discussed extensively about the changes in my life in the past ten years. As I look back at my own life so far, I wish to give thanks for:

# Every new day that I wake up to. 

# For the Grace that saved me, and then The Husband. 

# For the major life milestones that I have crossed in the past 10 years - Becoming a Mrs., becoming a homeowner, becoming a mom, and then becoming a mom second time round. 

#  For family ties that are brought closer as we mellow in age.

# For the joy experienced in good times and the lessons learned in bad times. 

And as I celebrated the special day, here is what I was thankful for:

# For the good weather as we all trooped down to SBG for a picnic.  

# For pretty maxi dresses, made for both grown and little women.

# For the Husband who took time off work just to spend the day with me and our little ones. 

# For moist, spongy, light and not-too-sweet chocolate fudge cake.

# For the love felt in the form of well-wishes, hugs and kisses from loved ones every time I add one more candle onto my cake.

What are you thankful for this week?

Your wedding gown looks so much like my evening gown. Pink and frilly :)

Hi June, thanks for dropping by! I have actually dropped by your blog a few times through Jus. Oh yes! We held our customary dinner there, except I remembered it wad called The Legends then. No? I had mine in 2007. What about you?
