Do I feel older? Kind of. Yesterday I turned the big 2-4 and it was a little bittersweet. Yes, 24 is a random age and not much really happens, yet it’s one step closer to turning 25 which is a big deal. Why? Because I’ll officially be a quarter of a century old and that’s just unacceptable.
I don’t normally reflect on birthdays, but this one felt different just because of the life circumstances that have been thrown my way these past months. Let me be honest, it’s been a hard time, but yesterday was a good break from it all. It was a day dedicated to me (and my twin) where I felt like I could just ignore a lot of the stuff that has gone on lately and do what I wanted.
I spent most of the day with family and friends, with the random emergency trip to the vet. (Stay tuned for the next post for more info.) I ate lunch with my sisters, nephew, and Nana at California Pizza Kitchen. Yum!
After work, the BF showed up with flowers that Luna had him pick up for me ;P. So sweet.
Then we headed to Maggiano’s Little Italy with our closest friends and our older sister and her family to celebrate one last time. Without realizing it, BF made us a reservation during a charity event for the SA Scorpions benefiting the Make-A-Wish foundation. SA Scorpion players helped the wait staff attend and serve guests throughout the night. We had a lot of fun chatting with our “server”, Freddie, a Scorpions MidFielder.
Overall, it was a great day. I hate that it flew by so quickly. I wonder what this next year has in store for me…
