birthday tradition

Had such a lovely birthday with my little family. A tradition from when I was young(er) is to get presents in the morning in bed. I remember the excitement as a child when I woke up and found presents in my bed! My mother never had presents when she grew up and I love how she made her own traditions for me and gave them a special meaning. This is my first birthday as a mother myself and I look forward to give my little girl presents in bed and tell her the story of her grandma that was never spoiled with gifts. She sacrificed a lot to give her family food on the table when their father passed away too soon.
