Well if you know me
You probably know that my Birthday is kinda a big deal
Well at least it is to me!
Every year I normally start planning weeks ahead of time for a mutli event celebration.
And I normally have a Big bday list that I'll happy pass out to whomever requests it.

But this year just felt different. 
I didn't really feel like planning
no list, no wants
almost slightly depressed about it approaching and I wasn't sure why.

When the BIG day came I woke up feeling slightly ill.
And as the day went on I felt like I was gonna D I E!
Not a very happy birthday besides my mom and husbands greatest efforts it was just a bust.

After that day I was pretty depressed that my day that comes once a year pretty much stunk
I couldnt' get over it or myself.
Then I saw I think my sister post something about when you feel down about 1 thing think of 2 you are thankful for.
So then I thought....
Why not 28!
Since I turned 28 why not think of the 28 fabulous things I am thankful here I go

2. My husband
