It's official. I'm 24 now. I'm not sure if I should feel different. All I know is that I don't. I've changed a lot over the past 12 months though. And I can honestly say that I'm proud of the person I'm becoming. Only God knows what the next 12 months will hold, but I'm really excited to find out!
On Wednesday morning, G woke up early to fix breakfast for me. When I came downstairs and walked into the kitchen, I was greeted by a dozen roses, a plate of scrambled eggs + bacon and a fresh cup of coffee. He also had a very sweet birthday card waiting for me too. Such a nice gesture. Love that man of mine!
I will admit, I was a bit cranky when I woke up because of a phone call I had received from Target (sorry, babe). Long story short, there was some miscommunication and they forgot to take me off of the schedule, so I was still expected to come in. Eventually, they got it all straightened out and I did get the day off.
I was still trying to recuperate after being sick for nearly a week, so I didn't feel like doing anything extravagant. Time spent at home, lunch at Mellow Mushroom and a trip to my brother's house was all I needed. My sis-in-love cooked a nice dinner and we celebrated as a family. It was great. I'm all about low-key celebrations as I've never been into elaborate shindigs. It's just not my style and I absolutely hate being the center of attention.
All in all, I had a wonderful birthday. I was surrounded by the people I love most, I was blessed with some very thoughtful gifts and I ate yummy food all day without regretting it (haha). To me, it was nothing short of perfect.
