Celebrating 27

Birthdays are so much more than just party hats and cake (even when that cake was made from scratch by your boyfriend).


Birthdays are so much more than presents and celebratory drinks (even when those drinks are enjoyed on the sunny deck of Tavern on the Water with girlfriends).


Birthdays are also nothing about being another year older - even when that year marks the "official late twenties" era of your life. 


Birthdays are about your friends and family who care enough about you to make your day (and you) feel as special as humanly possible. Birthdays are all about appreciating the gift of another year of life with those very special people. 




My 27th birthday was Sunday. Z, and about 20 of my friends and family, surprised the heck out of me with a birthday party/BBQ at Z's home. I sobbed - in front of everybody - and was so unbelievably touched by their love and kindness on that day (and, well, everyday). I am convinced my 27th year of life will be the best yet, because of the people in my life. Thank you!
