I hate getting old, and birthdays just remind me of the fact that I am going there. I know all about the reasons that I should be happy about getting old, but it doesn't mean that I have to be happy about it. This birthday though, has been very different, and it reminded me that I should be ecstatic with the fact that I am with the people I love, doing the things I want, and being where I want to be. Aging means I get to have more of it, so... why not?? let's be happy about it!
The Birthday Dinner
Homemade Paella, Seriously.
(Outrageously made in an authentic paella pan by Jasann)
- it was delicious!!!!
The Birthday Cake
The best carrot cake I have ever had.
(Baked by Ian, the guy who seems can do everything)
The Coolest Birthday Coincidence
Andrew asked me to pick out a birthday plant for our apt at Home Depot, so I picked up this one, and guess what it's called?? The Flamingo Plant! We had to get it, and now I have a flamingo plant. I plan to turn it into some sort of inspiration later.
Also, today has been the record day for my Facebook alert. At the same time, I wondered.... who has defriended me in the past few.... ever, I guess.
Then, the birthday is over. I feel happy and extremely peaceful with life. Acceptance really is everything.
