Don't tell anyone but I turned 26. To be honest I am not where I thought I would be by now. I had set goals for myself that I wanted to accomplish. One was to visit Greece by the time I was 25. Well, that didn't happen. I don't even have a passport. (I've been meaning to get one tho.)
Lately, I haven't been a fan of celebrating birthdays because they just remind me that I haven't accomplished everything I've wanted.
So, we didn't really celebrate my birthday, we worked at a fireworks stand this past weekend. It's a lot of work but a fun experience. But it was like everyone knew. I was called Ma'am all day!! Do I look like a Ma'am? It was like salt in a wound.
I think most girls have had a moment like this one Rachel Green from Friends had on her 30th Birthday.
I had it figured out that I would be married by the time I was 25, 26 at the latest, because I wanted to be married for a few years before I had children etc etc. Well, for those of you who don't know me, I'm not married, engaged or anything. But I am in love. I've found that person, which I think is probably the hardest part of "the plan".
So, I want to thank him - for accepting that I hate celebrating birthdays, for saying I'm still 21, for everything he does. He's amazing and the best birthday gift I could ever want.
