Today is my Birthday! I am now 29 years old. For some this may seem like nothing, but for me it’s huge because it’s the last year in my 20’s!!!
On Friday, two of my friends took me out to a new restaurant in town. It was a much needed girls night out with two girls that have seen me through all of my twenties and most of my teenage years.
There is nothing better than good friends. Although they gave me things for my birthday, this picture is the best gift. It made me realize how much I love those girls. I’m tearing up just thinking about it.
On Saturday, my friend Beatrice took me to see a musical at the Fox theater called “Memphis”. We both gave it two thumbs up.
For the past few weeks I’ve been putting together a list of 30 things I want to do before I turn 30. This entire year my motto is You Only Live Once (Y.O.L.O). A few weeks ago, one of my friends brother went missing. He’s still missing. Fourteen days after his 25th birthday he was nowhere to be found. And a few weeks before that, a classmate from high school died in her sleep. I think Y.O.L.O is a good fit for how I'm feeling right now when it comes to living life. That’s why I haven’t been doing much around my home. DIY and interior decorating has consumed me for the past three years. Over the holidays I had a small Christmas party with just a few of my closest friends. While sitting at the table talking and laughing, I had a moment. I realized that I missed hanging out. I missed laughing. I missed REAL TANGIBLE people!!! Blogging had become my everything. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy blogging, but I enjoy living life too. I have put off a lot of things in my life for no real reason. This year I plan to do as much as I possibly can. I won’t bore you with the entire list, but I will blog about whatever it is I’ve done that was on the list
Here’s to celebrating my birthday all year!!!
