|My mom and I before the concert!|
My mom and I both had birthdays this week, so we started our celebration last week by going with my aunt, cousin, and my cousin's mother-in-law to the Melissa Ethridge concert! Honestly, I wasn't a huge Melissa Ethridge fan before the show. I knew and liked several of her songs, but I certainly wasn't a die-hard fan. My cousin and I knew that our moms were really big fans, so we decided to go. After the concert, I definitely became a bigger Melissa fan! She is such a talented musician. The concert was in a small, intimate venue, and she played solo. No opener, and no band! She sang AND played every song herself. She had 9 guitars on stage, bongo drums, a tambourine, and a harmonica. She put on a really great show! It's not very often that my mom and I get one on one time together, and we ended up staying up until 4am talking and catching up! It was just a really fun weekend. Spending time with my mom is always a favorite.

As you can tell, this whole week was pretty much my favorite! Last year I was pretty bummed when my birthday rolled around. Another year had passed, and we still didn't have a baby. At that time, Lee and I were in the midst of our 5th round of fertility treatments, and we were just feeling really worn down and frankly just sad about not being pregnant yet. This year, our circumstances as far as pregnancy go have not changed, but not having all of the hormone injections definitely allows me to be more positive. This year I had a really great birthday. I felt very loved all week, and I just can't be sad because I have so much right now to be thankful for. God has been so good to us this year, and we know that He has a plan to make us parents at the perfect time. I'm trying to trust in Him, and spend my time enjoying my current blessings. Some days its harder than others, but this week has overflowed with happiness and thankfulness! So happy Friday everyone!! Enjoy Mother's Day and the wonderful women in your lives. :) For those of you who are not yet mommas, or cannot celebrate with your own mommas, know that I am thinking of you! <3 p="">3>
