It is hard to even say let alone accept but my birthday is only 10 days away. I love birthdays – not just mine but I just love birthdays. I always believe people should be celebrated and I find birthdays just so exciting. Except this year I have mixed emotions about my birthday. See this year is the big (dreaded) 30! Yikes I said it! I am going to be 30! How is that so?!? I remember (not that long ago) when I thought 30 was old – and well I still do sorta think it is, I am learning to accept it more since that will be me. I will be old! I say that with a smile on my face cause I don’t feel old. I guess 30 is the new 20 or something like that. My husband and I were in the car together the other day and this guy/boy drove up beside us and we both looked at each other and were like “Is he even old enough to drive?” He looks so young but then again he is probably 17 and we are 30 making him seem so young, but in my mind I’m still like 25. So as I told my sister in law the other day “If I have to turn 30 I might as well embrace it and make it big”. So thats what I plan to do! Since usually birthdays result in some form of gifts and I love gifts (but then again who doesn’t) I thought I would do a “Birthday Wish List” for myself. I always have my eye on something, thats the beauty or problem, with loving to shop. So here are some of the things I would love to receive for my birthday.
As lovely as all those items are, really the best gift is love. Money can buy nice things but it can’t buy love! Love is free!! So give some away today to someone and let me know if you do because that would make me so happy. Also stay tuned because I am going to be doing something special in honour of my birthday! Have a great weekend and stay warm and safe! I am off to snuggle my sick baby – this stomach bug is no fun!
