I am 29 as of midnight EST- I officially begin celebrating the last year in my 20’s today 🙂
Yes, I still get excited over birthdays. I know the appropriate age to get over birthday parties is around 12, but I love them and love celebrating. It is the one day of the year dedicated to ME 🙂 How can I not love that?!?!?!?!
This years birthday festivities include dinner with my parents at one of my most favorite places, Iron Hill Brewery. That will be followed by a night out with some family and friends on the deck at a local bar. Then it is go-time for Philly Women’s triathlon; the expo is Saturday and race day Sunday. First tri of the season and my birthday all on the same weekend…holy excitement!
When I was growing up, each year on my birthday at 7:11pm, the time I was born, my mom would take my photo; she did this for 18 years…here are a few of those over the years:
I am honestly excited about turning 29…I feel like my 30’s are going to be good for me. I don’t feel old at all…I feel like everything will come together in my 30’s and all the crap of my 20’s will officially be behind me. So when I say I plan to celebrate being 29, I am serious! Let the celebration begin 🙂
Oh…and as if my birthday wasn’t already super awesome enough…Kara Goucher was born today too 🙂
