Tomorrow is my 28th birthday. In years past I made a huge deal about “my” day. I’d plan big events and extend the celebration for a week or two. One year I did a 7 day celebration, I planned super fun things to do every night of the week and had huge weekend parties before and after my actual birthday. It was so fun, I got to see friends that I hadn’t seen in a long time and got to visit some new restaurants around the Twin Cities.
Now I sit here and think about what I want to do tomorrow and I keep thinking about the birthday I spent in Arizona with my brother two years ago. My best friend and I flew out for a long Memorial Day weekend. On my actual birthday in Arizona I visited my favorite mall, ate at my favorite restaurant, had Sprinkles cupcakes for the first time and had a lovely dinner with my two favorite people, my friend and my brother.
There is something about being out of your comfort zone on your birthday, I was on vacation and having my favorite event of the year, how could it be bad? It was the most relaxed, simple and pleasing birthday I had ever had and at the same time I believe it to be my best birthday I’d ever had!
Last year my birthday was spent celebrating the positive pregnancy test. So this year I have decided I am going on a vacation, a stay-cation in my own Twin Cities. I won’t be able to spend the day in the desert or eat Sprinkles Cupcakes but I will visit some places I have never been and spend it with my two favorite people, my husband and my daughter.
