A Big Deal
Normally, I make a big deal out of my birthday every year. By this point – I would have already plotted a theme, sent out a save the date and the actual invite, planned a menu and then started a daily countdown. It's annoying, or charming depending on your point of view – but it only happens once a year and so – people relent.
This year, I'm not making a fuss. Next Wednesday I'll turn 32. Three and two are my favorite numbers so I'm hoping the next year is an auspicious one. This last year has been fantastic at times and wretched at others – as life tends to go I suppose.
I still always get a little bit excited about it though – making it another year is kind of awesome.
