Sweet November and I'm 29.

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Today's my birthday. For some reason, in my mind I'm only turning 25. In reality...I'm 29. But this time, no jokes from me about how I'm 27 again..and definitely I'm freaking out that I'm turning the 'The three series' next year omg!

Really, I'm just so thankful for the wonderful year I had, hopeful for the year ahead, and very grateful for all of the sweet birthday wishes I've gotten from friends, family and even strangers. 


It's been a great day. I got some big birthday hugs (literally from mommy in her message) this morning then got decked out in my favourite color top and matching scarf, and headed to school, feeling pretty darn good...and suddenly the flower man came. 

 My husband secretly send the flower for my birthday knowing that we are 400km far from each other, he must have planned this earlier * sweetness overloaded*. He being the 'old school' kinda person-has no idea of expressing his love to people (especially me!) and never once send me flower since the day we got married. I only got flower twice from him and that was long before we got married. 1st and the 2nd was on my graduation day. 

My friend took me out for lunch treat and surprise me with cake. I ended the day with impromptu visit to the cinema with my 'new bff' at school. It's been a low-key birthday for sure, but that's just because it's on Saturday and I had to complete my conference paper, not because I want to forget about it..and yeah, I missed my baby so much!

As one of my favourite bloggers said " Here's what I think about birthdays: Celebrate them. Plain and simple. Whether you are two or forty-two.  It's not a promotion. It's not a graduation. It's the anniversary of freaking life. And the older I get, the more I'm not okay with hearing people downplay their big day like it's no big deal" Well, she's right, it is a big deal! Yeah, I may be older, but I'm also wiser and my life is more full from all the things I've experienced in my 29 years (not the least of which is the little girl I've acquired along the way). Hubby planned to have more soon! He just said it the night before my birthday. I'm speechless btw. We've been waited for three years for having another one. And now I'm in school again, having the mission of getting my PhD on time. Hopefully. Whatever comes from God, we are thankful for that. And we never stop praying for another miracle in our little family.

This is my sweet November and I always pray it will remain sweet like this forever.
