I love birthdays. While many of my peers cringe at the thought of another year gone by, there are few things I look forward to more than my birthday. I guess I’m a bit of a birthday brat – even now. There’s a reason for it! I have a twin brother, so growing up we always shared our birthday parties, cake, and sometimes even our presents. Once I was old enough to organize my own birthday celebrations, I went full force. I invited every single one of my friends out to dinner, organized themed get togethers, and spent the entire month of October in blissful anticipation. It felt good to celebrate my birthday my way.
Over the last few years, I have gone decidedly more low-key when it comes to celebrating….but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to make the occasion special. This year, I took a few days off from work, went to the aquarium, had dinner with my family, went to a drag show with my sister, and spent time with people that make me happy. My birthday has become an excuse to spend some time with the people I care about most. And that is pretty special.
On that note! Here are some of the highlights from my birthday week. Memories, fashion, makeup, and so much more.....
These were given to me by my friend Michelle before the Hanson concert. It was a total surprise and it meant a lot. There will be a review on those products soon, so stay tuned!
My birthday is over but I certainly made the most of the celebration. From friends to family….it was one to remember.
How do you celebrate your birthday?
