Golden Year

It's my golden birthday this year.  I'm not really sure who came up with the idea of "golden birthdays" or how one is celebrates it appropriately.

I have to say that I'm thankful my birthday is late in the month.  I feel like at 25, when all I have to look forward to is renting cars and supposedly lower insurance, I'm more thankful for my life and all it holds than, say, when I was 12.

Then, I was probably more worried about my braces, applying sun-in correctly (worst hair choice ever, even that one haircut), and other very important topics.

I really like birthdays.  Not because of the piles of presents or people spending the day granting my every wish, but because the gift of life is pretty awesome.

While I could argue that this past year hasn't been all that great, and believe me that the thought crosses my mind often enough, I know that I am blessed.  Well, maybe not as blessed as this time last year, when I was in Costa Rica.

I could go on with the gushy sentimentality, but I have a date with a couple girlfriends, pizza and drinks.

You can bet this isn't the last post related to my birthday this week.  I mean, this week is supposed to be about me, right?


  1. Amen. :)

    And hell yeah this week is about you! Well... and me... ;)

  2. My golden birthday was this year too! :)

  3. I didn't even know what golden birthdays were when I had mine! Ah well, my birthday is only 2 weeks after yours. Happy birthday!

    The first time I heard the phrase "golden birthday" I thought people peed on you on your birthday- like.. a golden shower.
