birthdays are good for you.

Some people dread their birthdays. Some people don't care about them all that much. As for me? I love birthdays. I love to celebrate my own birthday - and I love to celebrate other people's birthdays. There is just something excited about reflecting on the year that has passed. It is a chance to stop, appreciate life, and think back on how much has changed. This year....I am doing just that.

Today is my birthday. I have taken the day off of work so that I can sleep in, have an at-home spa day, read a book, and spend some time with my family. On the agenda for tonight? Dinner with parents, siblings, and finance. It is not my year to pick where we go for dinner (I am a twin so tonight we are celebrating my birthday and my brother's birthday!) - so I am not totally sure where we will end up. Hopefully the food will be good. After that, cake and presents at home and maybe a TV show or movie to end the night off right.

As for tomorrow, that is when the real fun starts. My friend and I are going to the city to celebrate properly. Think: Spice Girls theme, a gay bar, and plenty of adventures. I am definitely looking forward to that. I will be sure to update you all on how that goes, what I end up wearing to the club, and anything interesting that happens!

So....needless to say, I am very excited that it is my birthday. I can't wait to relax, have a little me time, and see some of my favourite people. After all - that is what birthdays are all about! Whether today is your birthday or not, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
