I am one year older today. It pains me to say that I'm now entering the last year of my twenties. Ouch. Mentally, I'm still hovering around 25. But, being older does have its perks; renting a car, giving 'life advice' to children, nearing closer to retirement age. Ha, I kid.
Being older also means that I can occasionally treat myself. My birthday gift to myself this year is an owl mug to drink soup out of because my ex-roommate took our only keurig; wine to forget that I'm not getting any younger; and the naked basics palette because I had to get my birthday gift at sephora and wasn't sure if you had to buy something in order to receive it. I used a gift card and also the wine was given to me, so really I only spent $15. Splurge.
I did have a delicious steak dinner with my parents on Sunday. And my boss just came in to tell me we're going for mexican food on our lunch today. I'm not really a shout from the rooftops 'heyyy it's my birthdaaay' kind of girl, so I prefer more low key dinner and drinks kind of celebrations where I'm in bed by 10:30 haha.
Either way, as you age birthdays become a great time to treat yo self.
