Alright, so today I turn 25. Yes, I know it’s not a big scary age, nor is it even that old. I think the only thing that gets to me is what I how growing up 25 seemed so far away.
Don’t get me wrong, I love where I am at right now. I have an incredibly supportive family, friends who I don’t think I could ever live without, an incredibly caring boyfriend and a job I love. I think it is just that the entire time growing up, 25 seemed like such a “big girl” age and now that I’m here it doesn’t seem that grown up.
I’ve been joking with my friends all week about how I can start to feel my hips give out.
Aside from the age, I really love birthdays! I love that you can get everyone together and see people you normally don’t get to see. I love balloons, cake and eating at really fun places. Birthday’s are so much fun for me! I always feel like I’m back in my childhood, counting down the hours until my friends come over for my birthday party. The anticipation that builds up before everyone arrives, making the gift bags, opening presents and of course, eating the pizza I always requested for my party!
This year was a little different and a bit more subdued, but I loved every second of it. I had all of my friends over on Saturday and the boyfriend make the usual owl cake. (3 years running and he just keeps getting better)! And then Sunday my family came over to our new apartment.
Needless to say, I think 25 will be a great year!… or as I like to call it, my 4th anniversary of my 21st birthday! ; )
