I was challenged by Bill to share some birthday memories! My birthday was on May 31st, so I’ll share what I did as I turned 27 as well as some highlights from past birthdays 🙂
My birthday can be a bit weird, sometimes it falls on Memorial Day. And I’ve never really had an over-the-top birthday celebration. This year, my birthday festivities were spread out. On Thursday, we went to Trader Joe’s which is one of my favorite things to do. We spent Saturday running errands which turned into us getting some brunch outside and picking up some awesome finds at a thrift store. I love when days turn into something new. And on Sunday, my boyfriend made me breakfast and we went up to the Lakes Region in NH and hiked a bit and picked up some sandwiches to enjoy on the lake front. It was a low-key birthday, but I enjoy lowkey.
Here’s some highlights from some of my other birthdays.
- For my 23rd birthday, my friends and I went to Toronto. It was a classic girls trip that was much needed after a year out of college. I would love to go back to Toronto.
- When I turned 18, it was actually our prom weekend. So I spent two days in Seaside, NJ doing ratchet high school things then spent my actual birthday with my boyfriend at the time.
- Somewhere around 15/16 I had a basement glow stick party at my house – it was extremely PG and just included pizza and a movie and highlighters. It was as cringe as a PG high school party could be.
Nowadays we normally try to travel for mine and my boyfriend’s birthday because we’re 15 days apart! We couldn’t do that this year, obviously, but quarantine birthdays don’t count in my book 🙂
Leave a birthday memory in the comments, I’d love to hear some of your favorites (or maybe some of your not so favorable birthday memories)!
