Some may call this post narcissistic. But I say, what the hell. Happy Birthday to me anyway!
I figure it this way, If there’s one day of the year to celebrate you – do it. Provided the other 364 you are earning that celebration in any way that you can. You’re nice, positive, kind, a good and best friend, deserving daughter, loyal girlfriend, supportive sister, clean roommate (preach!)… whatever modifier you may own, earn every stripe that allows you to take 24 selfish hours to celebrate you and your accomplishments with all those that love you. I’m also not above a paper pointy hat.
But to round out the list I’ve got 4 more just in time for a ripe 27.
- Just when you think you have pushed hard enough – push harder, (better, faster stronger, thank you Kanye!) something spectacular will happen.
- It doesn’t matter what kind of day you’ve had – if there’s one way to go to bed, it’s thankful. (…and maybe slightly tipsy, oh the wine!)
- Lean in – to friends, family, your job (especially when it gets tough) emotions and most importantly to love, this will always be a work in progress.
- Travel – see things and do things as much as you possibly can. (For the next 365 – I’m committed to this whole heartedly).
To continue our prophetic state, Susan Miller told me (via. Amelia Diamond) that 27 was going to be one of the “finest years of my life.” My gut says the same thing. Susan also said August 26th is going to be quite the lucky day for the everyone else too! I like those odds. So let’s “roll” with that shall we?
On a fashion related note can we talk about my not so stealthy color obsession these days? If we’re toasting with rosé we might as well wear it too. This “flouncey” number is also from my new favorite online shop – The Mint Julep Boutique and with yesterday’s birthday giveaway gift card this comfy swing dress will cost you $23.00 (Be still my stealin’ heart – amIrite?).
We’ve always had a lot of fun on August 25th and who says we have to stop now. I think birthday buddies Sean Connery (85), Claudia Schiffer (45), Blake Lively (28) fellow hometown resident Regis Philbin (84) would all agree today is going to be a great day.
To my family – they don’t call us fun for nothing, I love you all so much! To my friends – here’s to the best one yet, your friendship means more to me than you will ever know.
Now will someone hand me the rosé already?
