25 big ones.
Today is my birthday and I am going to eat cake, sit in the sun, enjoy some treats, and party like it's 1984.
I am skipping out on daily rituals today, because it's my birthday and I can.
I am skipping out on cooking and instead being treated to a dinner out, because it's my birthday and my husband freakin' rocks (low-down on our Italian eats coming later).
Tomorrow, I am attending a concert of a band I have wanted to see since I was sixteen. They are playing a show because it's the day after my birthday and they should.
It's true. Now I am closer to 30 than I am to 20. In math, 5 always rounds up to 10. *soft wimper*
But that's OK because I have green eyes and Coldplay is going to sing about them tomorrow. Yes!
"...That green eyes, yeah the spotlight, shines upon you.
And how could, anybody, deny you.
I came here with a load,
And it feels so much lighter, now I've met you.
And honey you should know, that I could never go on without you.
Honey you are the sea
Upon which I float.
And I came here to talk,
I think you should know.
That green eyes, you're the one that I wanted to find
And anyone who, tried to deny you must be out of their mind."
There are many things I am enjoying today and I am certainly blessed by it all.
Thank you for the life-giving emails, phone calls, and messages I have received already today. You are some dear hearts.
