365 Days of Happiness (102/365)

365 Days of Happiness (102/365)

Our little girl…our daughter Erin is 19 years old today!  Where did all the time go?  This little munchkin is in college now, and I spend today full of a thousand memories.


Here’s an interesting fact:   Our little bean is  “Queen of the 23rds!”   Huh, what?  You don’t know what that means? Oh – this is going to be fun.

So, today is Erin’s Birthday, February 23rd.  When she was younger – she noticed a very interesting phenomenon in our family.

She was born on Feb 23rd.

Peter was born on June 23rd.

Grandma was born on July 23rd.

Her aunt was born on May 23rd.

Even our dog Jewel was born on May 23rd.

So Erin created — the 23rd Club.   And our joke became, that Mom wanted to “get into” the 23rd club.  Now I was born on boring ole January 6th…..so – I don’t qualify.  But I would TRY!

I would tell her, — hey hey I’m the daughter of a 23rd, I’m the mother of a 23rd, I’m the sister of a 23rd, I married a 23rd, I’m even an owner of a 23rd!!!  Surely this is enough!

Nope.  Not a 23rd!  Ohh..the giggles and fun we had with this.

Happy Birthday Erin.  Dad and I love you always!

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
