This past Thursday was my birthday. It was definitely low-key and that’s okay. I have friends that are out of control when it comes to their birthday and make it the mega celebration of the year or choose to celebrate the ENTIRE month. Whatever floats your boats peeps. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good party every now and again but I guess as I continue to get older my expectations have changed.
So I’m now the big 3-4… wow. I’m pretty sure I’m in denial. Time flies by so freaking fast things I think occurred last year actually took place two years ago. Which by the way ended up creating an error on our taxes, oops! Sometimes I feel that there’s just not enough time to do everything or be everything that I want so I thought it would be cool to do a post that I’ll keep on my sidebar called 34 before 35.
Here’s my 34 before 35 list, I’ll update it when things are accomplished.
