Yes, I am officially 26 today. I feel so old, haha.
Time just keeps flying at such a fast pace I can barely keep up. It seems like onli yesterday I was celebrating turning 25 in Miami w/friends and family.
I don’t know if it’s the exhaustion from work or a newborn, or that things just aren’t going the way I planned with school, but I’m not really up to “celebrating” this year. Sure, birthdays are a separate thing and should be celebrated regardless, but there’s really nothing I want to do or anywhere in Philly to go.
But, since The Hubbi recently acquired some awesome gift cards to various restaurants around the city, I’ll be having a very small dinner with close friends and family, which is perfect for me because that’s what I like. Intimate, small things suit me best.
As for gifts, it sucks that the older you get, the less presents you get, haha. Of course, the things you want are more expensive so people can’t simply go out and get a toy, clothes, or whatever for you. Plus, at this stage, I’m a firm believer in treating yourself for your birthday. I don’t know if I’ll do that this year though since I’m not really feeling my birthday, but I’m sure I’ll find something to be happy about.
Actually, I do have something to be happy about.
Thank you for another year of health and various bits of happiness. Thank you for blessing me with such an amazing Husband and two beautiful children. Thank you for keeping our heads above water, even if we’re not where we want to be just yet.
Here’s to another year of ups and downs, hopefully more ups than downs!
I’ll try my best to blog about the day’s happenings tonight, but most likely I’ll be doing that over the weekend, haha.
