So, if you know me, you know how much I love my Birthday. When it gets down to about 2 months prior to my day, I start counting down, reminding people, and become relatively obnoxious about the whole thing. I really only do this because I like attention and to be honest, I love Birthday in general, not just mine. It is one day every year that everyone gets to themselves to do exactly as they please with no excuses.
I relaxed for the most part, went to Starbucks to get my free Birthday drink (the barista cheered when she saw my Birthday coupon) and then when I bought a cookie to go with she asked me something that made me wonder if we are soul mates. She said: “do you want that warmed up?” Do I want my cookie warmed up? Of course and why has no one at Starbucks ever asked me this before.
I also watched my favorite movie Love Actually and then my friend Sarah came over and we got mani/pedis and ate Mexican. That night, Ryan and I went to see Brief Encounter (a unique, beautfiul show I highly recommend) and then went to House of Brews where I had invited all of my friends to gather. It was at House of Brews that I realized how fortunate I am. So many lovely people came out to wish me Happy Birthday and I appreciated it soooooo much!
I really felt so much love on that day and I think that’s one reason I like Birthdays. The love. From the Facebook wall posts to text messages to people making an effort to see me, it was actually really humbling and I feel so blessed to have the friends I do.
I posted photos from House of Brews on Facebook but below are a couple random snapshots from the day:)
