Queen for a Day & a GIVEAWAY

Birthday’s have always been a BIG DEAL in my book. 
Growing up, 
there was ALWAYS something magical about birthdays…
As a child,
 it was about the suspense of the gifts,
 a free ice cream cone from Baskin Robbins, 
and a birthday party in your honor. 
In High School, 
you got your locker wrapped,
and got to pick a restaurant of choice for dinner.
For me now, 
birthday’s are quite different…
While I don’t necessarily look forward to my day of birth,
I get to relive this “excitement” with Miss L on her special day. 
For two years now,
we’ve done just that.
I hope to shape BIRTHDAY’S in the same way my parents did for me. 
YOUR day to shine. 
Celebrate YOU.
