Or - Leap into my Birthday? Or - Happy Birthday to Me? Or - I missed turning 7 this year by a nose?
It's my birthday! I'm 28 years old today on the 28th which makes this my Golden year or special birthday or something. I've thought about this day for SO long. I remember all my friends through elementary school who had birthdays on the 10th, 11th, 12th etc. I was never jeolous, I just always looked forward to turning 28 on the 28th of February. I always wondered where I'd be, what I'd be doing, if I would be married. I have to say, I'm quite pleased with the results as they are standing. Hopefully things will just keep getting better. Which when I think about it is really the best birthday gift I could get isn't it? To look at your life and know you've done your best and are happy with what you've accomplished. There were a few years around birthdays 18-22 where the outlook wasn't quite so bright LOL. Happily things took a turn for the better, and hopefully each year just brings more happiness.
I had a little date with my little boy today and we did some shopping and got brownies from the local bakery. Mmmm-mint brownies with 28 candles. Chocolate and mint..it makes me smile. My best friend in high school and I had a bazillion little inside jokes/things. Mint chocolate being one of them. We always talked about how we would be friends forever and keep in touch. It had been a few years since we had spoken and she found me from my blog the other day! So cool how that happens. Mmm..mint chocolate, Jessica-happy memories.
I am being totally spoiled this year and am acquring the gadget of gadgets. I am soon to be the proud new owner of an Iphone. I have never had an ipod, music player much less one built into a super fancy cool phone that I can check my email on, surf the internet, track my schedule, get directions etc etc etc.. They're cool, I'm excited. Understatement.
Dustin has arranged babysitting for tonight and I don't know what we're doing, but it should be fun! Hope your day is treating you as good as mine is!
