Today is my birthday. I'm not particularly fond of my birthday and typically the day passes with very little mention. I suppose it's being the center of attention, or the compliments and gifts that just make me uneasy. The past few years have been different though and I'm feeling like celebrating this year. I might even make myself my favorite birthday cake, German Chocolate. I haven't made one in years.
I received an early gift* this year from my friend Lauren and I couldn't help but show it to you because I'm so excited about it.
I am a journaler. Have I mentioned this before? I still have my childhood diaries in box somewhere that had a lock and key. (The cool thing to do in the 80's was to wear your diary key around your neck. Well, at least I thought it was cool.) So when Lauren's box arrived and I opened it to find this 5 year question journal I was ecstatic. Even though I received this gift last week I've been saving it for today. I will make my first entry tonight!
