I love this Day

I know it sounds lame, and maybe selfish, but I love my birthday. Love it. I look forward to it all year, and in the last few years I feel like I have been so busy with babies that I haven't been able to really LOVE it. Last year I was 3 days post baby and I was tired!

I decided that this year I wanted a party, but not your traditional birthday party. I decided that I needed to eat a lot, which is totally normal, and we needed to do something casual and fun. baseball!! We went to a Rangers game and invited a bunch of friends to come. We sat in the all you can eat seats, and we all had a blast. The highlight for me wasn't the hot dogs or the nachos, but when they all sang happy birthday and made me stand up. This normally embarrasses me, but this year I LOVED IT! Thanks to all who came, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!

So I am 28. I am not old, but I am. I don't feel old, but it sounds old. I still look at myself and at my life and think that I am so young. Last weekend was my High School 10 year reunion, that I obviously didn't attend being in a different COUNTRY and all. But it is crazy to think that I have been graduated that long and to think that I am 2 years away from being 30! I still think of myself as 17, and that I haven't aged at all. I cant believe I am married and have 3 kids. I cant believe that I live the life I live and I am only 28 years old! I also decided that I never ever want to be one of those scared and shy to tell how old they are. I will always embrace my age. 30, 40, 50, 60 I want to OWN it!! Loving life at 28!!

It looks like you had fun! Wish we could have come (I had a meeting or something). I completely AGREE with you about owning and embracing your age! We are what we are and who we are, so we might as well be happy and make it the best! Happy Birthday!
