as the celebration of the day of my birth comes to an end, i just wanted to share a few things.
first, i’m always so amazed at what wonderful friends and family i have. i mean, i know that i have great friends. and i know that i have a great family. but i’m constantly in awe of just how spectacular they are and how very Very VERY lucky i am to have every single one of them in my life. they are always so much fun, so uplifting, and just gosh-darn awesome. and, i won’t lie, i felt pretty cool with all the facebook well wishes i got today. yeah, i know it’s silly, but i was kinda worried that no one would say anything and that i’d feel like an awkward middle schooler again. lame, i know…but you gotta admit that you look forward to the facebook ‘happy birthday’ commentpalooza too. it’s ok, i won’t tell anyone.
thank you all for making me feel special and for bringing such joy to my life (and for making me feel super facebook cool, haha).
secondly, i used to be afraid of getting older. once you hit 21, what’s left? a decrease in my car insurance? wowza, that’s a party…not.
well, i’ll tell ya what’s left…everything. with each year, i feel like i grow that much more as a person, that i have that many more great (and sometimes not so great) experiences. so getting older? bring it on! i’ve earned these laugh wrinkles that are starting to show up and am damn proud of ’em!!
finally, i have eaten so much cake i think i might be sick. i’ve had gooey buttery cake, strawberry cake, chocolate mousse cake, and (soon to come) key lime pie. oh, sweet delicious calories…i will be shaking an angry fist at you when i try to button up my pants next week. but, you were totally worth every bite!!
thank you everyone, for a spectacular 27th birthday. i can’t wait to see what this age has in store for me!
