Welcome to July! It is exactly 3 weeks until my birthday. And even though both my husband and mother-in-law thought that it'll be my 26th birthday this year, I'll really only be 25. Birthdays are strange for me. I don't ever really get excited by them for two reasons really:
1) birthdays weren't well celebrated in my family growing up. We'd usually get presents either well before or well after the actual day, no cards and maybe a 'oh right, happy birthday' on the day. A bit of a letdown. and 2) very few people remember my birthday. I blame it on the fact that it's right in the middle of summer. Friends are usually busy or away during summer.
N always makes a big deal about my birthdays usually, which is nice and I love him for it, but it seems to be an uphill struggle for him as I can never decide on what I'd like for my birthday or what I'd like to do. Is that just me? Are you supposed to do something extra-nice for your 25th?
