A Day In My Life: June ’13- Birthdays

dayNlifeYou may or may not find this surprising, but as a writer I’ve never been much of a journaler (I like making up words). I’ve always kept writing, sketching, and poetry notebooks, but I’ve never really liked writing about myself. This monthly post is my attempt at rectifying that and is an opportunity for me to get a little personal, as I share a single event from my life.


June 5, 2013

My husband and I refer to June as Birthday month. For instance, today is my nephew’s and his father’s birthday…but wait there’s more. So far this month, Tim and Ben, two other brother’s-in-law of mine had birthdays and so did my sister Tori, but that’s not where it ends. I still have cousins and friends birthdays to acknowledge along with my dad, Dennis, my husband, Eric, and my father-in-law, Sam. I’m pretty sure there is someone else I’m leaving out, but oh well.

In the end, I guess the existence of birthday month is the reason I made my character, Mira, born in this month.  Anyway, because of all the birthdays and family tradition, all my local family gathered together for our monthly family dinner/birthday celebration. It was a really good time. I do love my family!

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
