Twenty-Five

♪ ♫ ♩ ♪ It’s my birthday, and I’ll wear sequins if I want to, sequins if I want to, sequins if I want to…And if I have my way, I’ll eat cupcakes all day. ♫ ♩ ♪ ♫

Growing up is for the birds, so I decided to spend my birthday wearing my favorite things: silly necklaces, animal print, and excessive amounts of sparkle. We grabbed some cupcakes, I picked up a latte, and we’re heading for my favorite pizza soon. Excluding the excessive caffeine, it could be my fifth birthday party, and those activities would still be spot-on. Twenty-five isn’t as mature as I thought it would be. What a relief.

Is there a better excuse to don floor-length sequins than a birthday? It was practically a sequin safari, with the animal print booties and olive tank. The gold key bracelet was a thoughtful birthday gift, as we’re working on buying a house. That’s a big change for twenty-five! Oh yeah, and I’m starting a new career tomorrow in marketing…and we’re planning a wedding. To quote one of my now-former co-workers, “When you decide to make a life change, you make a life change.”

Needless to say, things are a bit chaotic. There’s menu sampling and vendor shopping, home inspections and mountains of paperwork, benefit changes and new commutes…Holy moly, at least we have coffee. But as Lance keeps reminding me, those are all exciting things. And, they’re all things that are happening in the next twelve months. Looks like twenty-five is going to be pretty rad.
