I'm 25?? Quarter of a century? That's so weird. I feel like I'm still 18 and stupid. When you say it slowly, it sounds even worse. TWEEENTY FIIIIIVE
Celebrating was fun! I have more friends in the Jacksonville area than I remembered. I feel ashamed at how silly I can be sometimes. I was thinking "I don't want to ask people to celebrate 'me' on my birthday. I'll just stay home." I was getting down in the dumps like a little kid because I felt weird asking people to hang out with me on my birthday?? Luckily, Megan asked where I wanted to go for dinner - I didn't have a choice about whether or not we were going, just WHERE do I want to go? hahahaha I love her so much. Once I realized that I was being silly and of course my friends would want to hang out with me, I started inviting people and feeling much better about it.
My husband went out of his way to make this week special for me. I love him so much. He sent me flowers on Oct 30 - the anniversary of our first date! He mailed me a birthday present with a card and a wonderful note. Having his handwriting to look at was very special. That's not something I get to see very often! I got phone calls most days, and one day I got TWO!! I love being with my husband more than I can put into words, but this was the absolute next best thing since I couldn't physically have him here. He really did a great job.
I got countless phone calls, emails, gifts, text messages, and the obligatory Facebook message since it just rubs birthdays in your face!! I still need to call back a few people - SORRY EDEN!! Hahaha, there is a long car ride today with her name on it.
I spent the day with my family in Raleigh. It has been fun! We ate a delicious dinner, I got a few gifts, and just had a good time watching TV and movies with them. They're pretty great.
PS new Tumblr account for everyday postings... little things that interest me. Also because I am bored.
