Birthdays make me feel free.
They’re a fresh start.
Whenever my birthday comes along,
I always get excited to start anew and make big things happen.
My motivation may not last all year long,
but it’s a great feeling.
I hope I never feel “too old” to celebrate my birthday.
I love spending time with my favorite people,
doing my favorite things, and feeling optimistic about the newest year to come.
28 greeted me with surprises,
including my parents coming to my classroom unannounced
and decorating the teachers lounge too.
Later, my coworkers brought me coffee and a Fleet Feet gift card,
which means I get to treat myself to some new running stuff!
And then my sweet, sweet Abuela cooked my favorite Cuban dish
as I celebrated my birthday with my family that night.
A pretty good day!
And to top it all off, last night I celebrated my birthday with my friends.
They joined me for some Ah-mazing italian food
at one of my favorite midtown establishments.
(Mmmmmm. I’m pretty much still dreaming about the pasta I got.)
Then we headed over to a nearby club to watch Tainted Love,
an 80’s cover band who is pretty darn awesome!
There’s nothing I love more, than singing at the top of my lungs
and dancing my heart out
to Journey, Blondie, Madonna, and more!
Pretty much, the night was a blast.
Like I said, I just like to spend my birthday doing my favorite things
with my favorite people.
And according to all the fun I’ve had in the past week,
this birthday goes in the books as awesome.
