Happy Birthday To Me

Celebrating another year of life with those closest to my heart, with the exception of my husband and dad that are missing in this picture.
I was lucky and blessed to celebrate another year of life. It's been a rough past couple of days and that was just a reminder of how fragile life is.

One moment you are here and in another moment you might not be here. That's why today was extra special, I celebrated in honor of my Grandma, I know she would have been happy to see us today. I'm not going to lie and say that it was all happiness, as a matter of fact you can see that my eyes look a little swollen in the pictures above. More than half a day was spent crying, one moment I would laugh and then the reality of my grandmother passing away would hit me and another wave of tears would come.
This birthday was the hardest, also missing my dad who is still in Mexico but time will heal our hearts day by day. It will be a slow process but it will happen. 
In the meantime I will hold my family close, tell them i love them everyday and not take anything for granted. Life is too precious to spend it mad or unhappy.

Cheers and here's hoping that this year goes by smoothly and full of lots of happiness.

Kary xoxo
