Birthday Wishes

I woke up at 8:30 am, my socked feet dragging against the floor and turning on the heater for my little toes to warm up from a chilly night. From her bed, Mom exclaims me a happy birthday. Oh yeah. 

I turned 18. An adult.

I prepared myself before I had to clock in at work. Yes, I worked on my birthday. But it was a really good birthday at work. Mom, knowing I wanted a bow in my hair for most days at work, came in an hour after I clocked in, accompanied with a chocolate cake and red ribbons for my hair. It was an announcement to everyone; it was my birthday! All day, I’d seen my co-workers sneaking into the break room for just one more slice of that yummy chocolate cake. It was hilarious. I actually had fun at work. Everyone made me smile.

To anyone on their birthday, I highly recommend making the day obvious. Go out-and-about wearing a birthday sash and crown and whatever else. It may seem embarrassing, but you’ll get happy birthday wishes or smiles from almost everyone who looks at you! Plus, it’s a good social experiment!

I returned home with a bag of presents waiting for me, and I immediately started using it. I was on my way to knit weaving a hat!… Until 2 am even though I had to wake up in 6 hours.

The night before, at straight up midnight, a good friend called me to yell happy birthday.

It’s the little things!

To more adventures, friends, and hard work!


P.S. I’ll give you a hint as to where I am…Arizona. 😉
