Today is my favorite holiday. Yes, my favorite. I love my birthday a lot. I don’t know what it is. Maybe its summer, being at the cabin. Something. But I sure have had some birthdays to remember.
My 5th birthday was spent in Grand Junction Colorado. My grandparents used to live there.
My 6th birthday, I had a pony come to my house. I also remember that I got Barbie rollerskates!
My 9th/10th birthday, I had a slumber party. We all tye dyed shirts and stayed up ALL night!
Most of my teen years were spent up in Northern Minnesota. We rented a cabin for a week, and well, it always fell on the week of my birthday. But I always had fun with my crazy family and their friends.
My 16th birthday I got my drivers license. yep that day. and my parents rented out a park and I celebrated with several friends. It was Blues Clues themed. I was a huge dork.
My 21st birthday I was in ITALY! I was doing an internship over there (and of course the legal drinking age in Italy is 16). But, I had a great party with the people I was there with.
My 24th birthday was celebrated in Disney World. It was technically our weekend honeymoon a month late, and my birthday wrapped up into one. It was fun though!
Last year (my 26th) was the worst birthday ever. I love my birthday like mentioned before. But this was terrible. My husband was out of town in Hawaii for work of all places. I couldn’t go because I didn’t have any more time off work, since we were going to Alaska a month later. So I was home alone. To top it off, my grandma passed away the Friday before. So her funeral was scheduled for Tuesday (my birthday). My husband is in the military, so I am 1,748 miles away from home, and like mentioned before I didn’t have time to take off work, and plane tickets are ridiculous in the middle of summer. Luckily I have nice friends near by that made sure I wasn’t sitting alone at home. But such a sad birthday.
Now this year. What I am I doing today on my birthday?!? I am in SWITZERLAND!! With the woman that brought me into the world. My mom. She is the best mom in the world. Which is why I am lucky to have her taking me to EUROPE of all places! Who knows what we are doing (hopefully not causing too much trouble)!
So I am sure this will be another memorable birthday in my books.
Have a wonderful day!
