I really, really, really love my birthday, probably because there was a time where I thought I might not see another one. A birthday has never been a day I lament being older; it's a marker of another year of happiness, health, and life, and I'm always excited to welcome it. Also, I think there's a six-year old inside me who wishes October 21st were a national holiday where confetti rained from the sky and I could eat cake for breakfast. But until confetti starts spontaneously raining down, I'll have to settle for free birthday ice cream from Coldstone :)

Happy birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating and cherishing the moments with your loved ones. I may be biased, but I think fall birthdays are the best! Crunch leaves, warm cider, cooler air. It makes me happy to see pumpkins and apples. (My birthday is at the end of November.)

Ali said...

Happy birthday! :) Aren't they the best?

Happy Birthday!
Did you notice that you are wearing the same sweater as you wore in the post you linked to?

I'm still not sure what to think of on-line relationships (?) when I suddenly feel like I know you, even though I don't.

Anyway, thank you so much for sharing.

annie said...

Yay! Happy #25! I'm the same way about my birthdays... they should be celebrated with lots of fanfare! Enjoy your day! (Great outfit, as usual!)
