We are never ones to pass up an opportunity to celebrate. Any occasion to indulge in baked goods, escape the mundane, and make the little things extra special, you'll find us doing it.
Half birthdays, daylight savings, the NFL draft all become holidays celebrated in some special way. Life is too breakneck paced to not make the most of every single day and fill it full of excitement and fun.
So years ago, before boys and late nights in the office, before school loans and a sippy cups, Matt instituted birthday month...and I'm so glad he did! We take the whole month to find little ways to bless and surprise the birthday honoree.
