I am officially 32 as of June 16, 2017.  Another year older, another year of life which I am greatful for.  It was a fun weekend hanging out with family and friends.  It was our very first barbeque in this new home of ours and I love it.  My husband got the cutest little barbeque too.  It suits perfectly in our little balcony and it’s perfect for the two of us because it’s really small but yet it still managed to cook for more than 6 people so this little barbeque is quite remarkable!

I love barbeques and it always floods me with great memories.  One of my fondest memories that involved my birthday and having a barbeque was a few years ago.  I arranged a big BBQ at Jericho park with all my friends; we had burgers, hot dogs, chicken wings … We then played some Ultimate Frisbee which was sooooo great!!  It was the perfect weather and we were all just laughing hysterically as we all tried to compete with one another.  I remember Mr. L just diving towards the grass trying to grab the Frisbee but it ended up perfectly smack dab on his forehead.  I remember trying to take a group photo but there was always someone missing or not looking at the camera.  I remember all of us just laughing and laughing and eating and eating until the breeze started blowing cold and it was time to go home even though we all really didn’t want to.  Until this day, all my friends say that was one of the best days they remember in the summer too and that we should have another day like that.

My have the days changed though.  If we were to have another day like that it will be different.  Why? Because our lives have changed.  Most of us have children now.  There’s nothing wrong with that! For me, there’s new memories to look forward to because I’m excited to see the kids have the chance to play their games and laugh and laugh as all us adults watch and laugh with them.  My best memories of barbeques is the concept of all of being together in one place, enjoying the day; the moment.  One big happy family regardless of the number of adults and children.  As long as we are all together having the best times of our lives, that is all I could ask for.

So bring it on 32.  Bring on more days of joy and life.
