I have a double standard about birthdays: I enjoy congratulating others, thinking about the perfect gift and those small thoughtful details, baking a cake, spoiling the birthday boy or girl, and such. However, I'm not excited about my own birthdays, I'm very shy and introverted so being the center of attention is actually overwhelming for me. I haven't had a birthday celebration in 12 years, and not by my making because it was a surprise party planned by friends. My ideal birthday is simply spending the day doing my usual things, like nothing is different about that day... I'm very lucky to have found true friends that understand and respect this, who don't make a huge deal about it and simply congratulate me from the bottom of their hearts. In the past, I felt that offering to throw me a party was more about them than me.
However, this is my first birthday as a married woman and I feel something happy and giggly growing inside me. I'm eager for waking up tomorrow in his arms, and being greeted with a happy birthday kiss. I asked Oka to take me to the movies, one of our favorite activities, and I plan to eat all the popcorn I humanly can before exploding (bliss!). Last weekend we went to a cute mountain cabin with our two best friends, a couple we've met for many years, her birthday is a few days before mine so we had a great time celebrating our birthdays together in that little adventure (I just wish it wasn't so cold ><). My mom offered to make my favorite food, both my siblings will be around for that day, so I'll be surrounded by the people I love the most. I already finished and passed all my exams for this period, we're just weeks away from moving to our own home, all my cats are healthy and happy, Mexico got a ticket to the World Cup next year, and the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers both won yesterday, so I would say everything is perfect on my side!
I already starting receiving many good wishes from people here in deviantART, I really love this community and I'm extremely thankful for every single one of you. I really hope that you're all as blessed and happy as I am, and that all those good wishes get back to you
thank you for thinking of me, even when I've been a bit absent lately, and making me smile with all your comments.
Everything will be all right in the end. If it's not all right, then it's not the end.
