My Birthday

Today is my birthday. 
I have a hard time with change, I've mentioned this before, but for some reason I didn't have a hard time with the idea of getting older this year (read: as hard of a time). 

Maybe it was because we went to one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants last night...
...and played Guess Who?
...and lit my new candle from Anthropology (the only candle I really wanted).
Or maybe it was because Scott told me he took today off work to celebrate with me, but I hope that because I'm getting older, I'm getting wiser too? (we can only hope)....
 And this wisdom perhaps helps me see that age is just a number not a state of mind and that birthdays are about the gift of life and not the burden of ageing. 

So with a young state of mind we went to Target and bought Guess Who? Did you know now they have animals in the game too? At first, I was put off by the fact that they changed it (of course), but it actually made it really funny. At least we were rolling.

|after we picked the same character|

Scott: "Unbelievable! Is yours Freddy too?"
me: "Yes!!"

Scott: "So why did you pick Freddy?"
me: "He looks like one I'd bring home. Why did you pick Freddy?"
Scott: "He looks funny, a little silly....That's why I picked Artie too"
me: "Now I'm gonna know the kind your pick"

Anyways...let the celebrations continue! Believe me, birthdays around here can go on for weeks and that's what I plan to allow for mine.
