Today is my 25th birthday! This morning I went to Starbucks to get my free birthday drink (a venti white chocolate mocha), was serenaded at the window by three of the baristas (one of whom shares my birthday), received several birthday text messages, phone calls, and facebook messages, received a little bouquet of flowers and balloon from my dear friend at work, and brought my friends at work their very own Starbucks drink. So far it is a great day!
My birthday is always a little bittersweet for me though. I share my birthday with my great grandma Ola. Sadly she passed away several years ago (when I was a junior in college) and I miss her dearly. Because of our shared birthday we had a very special connection. We always tried to celebrate our birthday together and now I don't have her to share it with. But I always remember her on this day and wish her a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY because I know that she is watching over me and the rest of our family.
We have no big plans tonight really. Hubby is cooking steaks and lobster tail for dinner for us and we are going to take it easy. Tomorrow we are going out to celebrate with a big group of friends and family. We are having dinner downtown and will probably go somewhere cool like the Rooftop Bar for a little drinkie drink afterward. It should be fun. Hopefully I'll remember to take lots of pictures!
I apologize for my absence in the blogging world this week. I have been crazy swamped at work and my evenings have been full of stuff. So I have had no time for blogging. I am going into withdrawals a little bit I think!
