Yesterday was my birthday. I’m officially in my mid 30s. I used to spend a whole week celebrating my birthday when I was in my 20s. Nights out with friends, friends over for board games, all sorts of food, but now I’m happy with a nice dinner with the boyfriend and well wishes from friends.
I did get a few awesome gifts from the boyfriend and co-workers, one of my closets friends took me out for lunch, and the boyfriend took me out for dinner since we got a baby-sitter! It was overall a good day!
When I was younger and my birthday came along I would spend birthday money on school supplies. I loved, loved, loved buying school supplies! School always started shortly after my birthday, and I was always so excited to go back. Now, as an adult person, I still LOVE to buy school supplies. I just buy them year round now. Since I’ve been bullet journaling for over a year now I’m constantly buying new pens, washi tape, fun stickers, pen cases, and so many other cute/fun school supplies that I never really got to enjoy as a kid!
Now, once my birthday is over I’m just ready for fall! There are no other summer holidays I really have to look forward to. Labor Day is just a day off work, and, if I’m lucky, a day of day drinking and grilling. I’m already ready for fall weather, leaves on the ground, pumpkin everything, and scarves!
So, I’m another year older, another year wiser(?), and another year closer to actually being and adult. When does that happen by the way? Some days I feel like an adult, but most days I feel like I’m just trying to get through it. Having a kid hasn’t made that feel any different. If anything it’s made me feel like I know even less than I thought I did!
Hope you all have had/will have the happiest of birthdays this year! And many more! I’m happy to have all the amazing people I have in my life, and couldn’t imagine a better place to be right now. ❤
