I love birthdays, especially my own. I love it more than christmas. When I was younger, I would lay awake in my bed the night before my birthday and squeal in pure excitement for the morning to come. I loved getting to wear a crown that day in elementary school. I love (and still love) when my mom makes a special cake for me. I am, and always will be, like a child on May 17th; the greatest day of the year.
This year was extra special because I turned 21. I am finally an official adult! My husband says he doesn’t feel like a cradle robber any more (even though he’s only four years older than me). Most of our friends are at least 22 or older so now I won’t feel like such a baby when they ask me how old I am. Woo-hoo!
I didn’t want to do anything big for my birthday so James and I just slept in and were lazy all. day. long. It was glorious. I couldn’t even remember the last time we had done that. The moment we woke up he had me open my present. I swear he was more excited about it than I was. It was a Kelly Moore Camera Bag!
I have been wanting one of these babies for a very long time. A big goal of mine is to get into the habit of bringing my camera with me wherever I go and this purse will help me do that because it’s super cute, but made to be a camera bag.
We eventually left the house and went to dinner. For a long time I knew I wanted to go to Cafe Lucky Noodle in downtown Eugene. It’s the place he took me on our very first date around the same time two years ago. The food is amazing. Like, holy crap-I don’t even know what to with myself, amazing.
We then felt it was necessary to end the night with some frozen yogurt at Yogurt Extreme. They have the best flavors! I got a combination of french toast, red velvet, and birthday cake. Sounds weird but I promise it was delicious.
But what makes this birthday the most special, is it’s the first one I’ve gotten to wake up with him, spend every moment with him, and snuggle until I fall asleep with him. The one who makes my life a million times better and who I am so excited to celebrate at least 70 more birthdays with. I love you, babe.
