I love birthdays. I loved them when I was a kid, I love them now, and I'll still love them in the future.
I view birthdays like this: they are a celebration of me & my life, not my age or how life is changing for me. I harken back to when I was a kid; when birthdays were highly anticipated events where your family tried their hardest to make the day special. Now that I'm married my husband Sean did a great job of carrying that torch.
To make my day special I fill it with as many of my favourites as I can. If you want to make it a special day, always take it off of work. Sleep in. Enjoy a day of your favourite foods. Take every moment in with a sense of happiness. Let the little things that make you grouchy go as they come up.
Here's a pictorial blog of my b-day yesterday and how I enjoyed the day.
A Special Birthday Lunch with Sean at Lumberjacks
My all time favourite food--grilled cheese! The yam fries were a bonus.
The yummiest cake ever! It's a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream cake from Marble Slab.
A good old fashioned candle blowing out! Thank goodness they didn't put 29 candles on my cake.
My favourite b-day present! An iPad! Welcome to the world of Mac.
Wow, this thing reminds me of when I'd get a new video game for a birthdays or Christmas. I will be immersed in iPad land for the next while.
My birthday is not complete without our kitty Peekay playing in the tissue paper.
Right before I went to bed, my good friend Laurie stopped by to drop off this adorable cupcake "cake" she baked for me. : ) It was a totally unexpected suprise that made me feel like a million bucks.
Thanks to all that made yesterday a great day! Celebrate how special you are, not how old you're getting. : )
