My 33rd birthday is this wednesday. Oh my god. 33.
I have been emotionally up and down about it. On one hand it’s fun to celebrate with friends and eat cake and I do love me some presents. But on the other hand, 33 is an awfully high number, and there are so many things I want to accomplish that I haven’t yet. I’m a little thrown off by how fast time really has flown by. I know people always say that, particularly when you are young, but they are right. All these years have passed in what seems like the blink of an eye.
I’ve decided not to do anything for my birthday this year, just spend it with my husband and my sister. I’ve had some family and friend issues lately and it’s honestly just worn me out. Maybe it’s my advanced age (ha!) but I’m just a little too tired to deal.So the only gift I want this year is the gift of peace and mellow. Mellowness and laughter. And maybe some sparkly new earrings. ;)
(All of the pictures on this post are of the birthday surprise for my sister, who’s b-day is 10 days before mine. This is the first year I did not go to her b-day dinner in our entire lives, but I still had to give her some cake and presents! I would have taken pictures of her receiving them, but we surprised her just before she stepped into the shower, and I didn’t think she’d appreciate that!)
