Today I wanna dance, I wanna sing to the top of my lungs, and twirl around in circles with a flowery dress, or maybe with sequins, I want high heels and red lipstick, and maybe even curl my hair! My baby is turning two and I am happy... unearthly happy, I want to cheers to love and babies, and daughters, and friends, and all that is good.
Lately I have been immerse in a sea of things, I have flamenco, and gym, and school, and a husband, a house to tend to, and basically no time for myself. But then in moments like a traffic light with a good song, girls singing out loudly, Ari laughing and trying to sing along...then I think ¨heck why not, turn it uuuup¨ and I feel this rush of "this feels good" right then and there, the world stops, and sings and dances with us.. to our rhythm, to us! And it's worth it. Life is worth it, the smile on my girls face is all worth it... and a 2nd birthday is worth it!
Today I held Ari so close at 6:50 pm., the time that I herd her cry for the very first time. The moment I birthed her into this world, and the moment were life once again stared back at me with two beautiful little big black eyes, that filled my heart with so much love that I thought I would never stop crying.
Our home has always been pretty loud, there is always something going on, I love that is never quite even when I want it to be quite.... and then comes Ari, to complete our perfect mess with more giggles, and curls, and chubby hands and feet, and a smile that melts your heart. And yes... she owns us.. all of us!
On Thursday, her birthday... I thought that a cake with her sisters, her big brother and her mom and dad would be more than enough.. I mean she enjoys anything sooo much that that would do it...
But then.... life... why stop at a cake, why not really turn up the volume and celebrate it? So there I was with happiness and willingness to celebrate one of the many reasons God has given us to love and live fully. So on Friday I went and got some flowers, made some colorful hearts to decorate the house, called Daniel´s girlfriend that has a cake factory, called my closest friends and family and got ready to party!!!
Got some pretty cool presents!
And I got to take a beautiful picture of my birthday girl... pinkier than the cake, oh and that dress....!
Happy birthday mi puchipluncita... te amo con locura! Life is good!!! Thank you God... really...
