the way I see it, you should live everyday like its your birthday.



When I was young, I always looked forward to my birthday. In fact, fall was my favourite season simply because of my birthday. Now that I'm a little bit older, my birthday is not something I look forward to. I feel like such a cliche, but it's true! Every year, I find my age a reminder of all the things I've yet to do with my life. It can be tough.

The only way to deal with getting older is to have some fun, right? This year, that is exactly what I did. Last Friday, my friends and I had an 80s themed night, where we went out to dinner and a club and danced like crazy! Then, on Sunday, my boyfriend and I celebrated his birthday (which was on October 17th) and my birthday (which is tomorrow, on October 24th). We kept it simple and went to dinner and a movie. All in all, it was a great way to remind myself of the important things in life: the people I love.

Tomorrow, I'll be celebrating my actual birthday with my immediate family. Until then, here are a couple of pictures from my nights out!


When is the last time you went out?
