I'm having an incredible day already, and it's not even 8:00 a.m. yet! Yes, today is my birthday, and I feel very, very loved.
My kids and husband brought me eggs benedict, coffee, and chocolate chip waffles for breakfast in bed. My step-son texted me from literally the middle of nowhere to tell me to have a great birthday. Someone in Vienna wrote and posted a magical story about me on a dragon going to Paris, and my favorite star tweeted me happy birthday at 12:01 a.m. his time. It really doesn't get better than this. I don't know what the day has in store, but I can't wait to find out!
I won't tell you my age. Quite a while back, I decided 27 was a good year and I've been celebrating it ever since. My friend and hairdresser told me earlier this week I should be proud of my age, and that no one would believe it. I'm going with that.
My husband just walked in and gave my an incredible gift--a new stereo for my car. This one has a jack so I can plug my phone or ipod directly into it. Now I'll be able to listen to Pandora while I drive--how cool is that?!?! I wasn't expecting anything sizeable, and this is really, really amazing.
I digress--back to the age thing. I find that each year I care a little less what other people think and am a bit more sure of myself, both of which are good things. Life is best when the opinions of others are less important. I'm in good health and alive and kicking, so I'm going to celebrate with all my heart, each and every year. Age is just a number, meaningless in and of itself. If I start to feel old, I'll just head to Walmart to try and buy wine. They card each and every time, always leaving me smiling.
Have an awesome day everyone!
