Ok people, huge secret. It's my birthday...my 25th birthday (gasp). Can you tell I'm not excited? I know to some people this does not sound old, like my brother and sis-in-law that just called me. They are both 35 and have 2 children. I never thought I would be a quarter of a century old. Why couldn't I stop the clock at 22? Even 23?
As much as I am complaining, I am actually more content with my life right now than I have ever been. I am getting married to my best friend in 4 months, I have a loving family that I absolutely love more than anything in this world, my friends are amazing girls that I miss everyday, I have a great job, and I am surrounded by wonderful people!
I may not be celebrating my birthday the same way I did in college by meeting the girls at a fun restaurant, ordering shots the minute we sit down, and then going to the bar until the wee hours of the morning. This year my roommate is cooking dinner for about 10 girls who are coming over around 7pm. We will be drinking wine, eating dinner, and probably going to play a little Taboo (imagine that). I still have to work today and not much will be different. In college I think I skipped class every birthday just because I could. Well, it doesn't work like that anymore which is fine with me. There seems to be nothing better than waking up in the morning drinking a few cups of coffee, putting on your big girls panties, and heading to a REAL job. So, as much as I complain that I'm halfway to 50, my life is perfect and I wouldn't change it for the world.
Have a great day everyone! Let's hope no one notices it's my birthday :)
