Savor

A year ago I was celebrating a "milestone" birthday and planning what ended up being the most fabulous of midnight dinners.

Tonight I'll be relaxing with a couple girlfriends, and then maybe watching some Netflix before I head to bed. (Ben and I are celebrating this weekend).

I'm ready for a low-key birthday this year, and more importantly, to appreciate where I am in life.

So much of this past year has been planning or hoping or wishing or dreaming. It's taught me that tomorrow is not a given.

I want to collapse into my bed at the end of the day, exhausted in the best way, by the experiences I had. I want to revel in the little moments and celebrate the big ones.

So hello, thirty-one. Let's savor it.

I agree that your birthday celebration sounds perfect. It's fun to have big celebrations like your epic party last year, but it's also nice to quietly ring in a new year with some good friends. I can't wait to see what the year will hold for you - if anyone deserves an excellent year, it's you. Love you!!

I think birthdays should be all about the things that bring happiness and make you feel awesome about life-- your birthday sounds like it's going to be relaxing and enjoyable. Wishing you all the best for the year ahead, because you deserve a red-banner one for the awesome person you are!
