This Is One Birthday To Look Back On.

Hey guys! Thanks for hanging out with me.

It’s April so that means it’s Aries season. Which also means that I have a birthday coming.

April 11th has come and gone with a blink of an eye. Today is April 14th and it’s 12:40 a.m.

I’m sitting in my family room on the sofa as the television plays and I do some posting to my IG story. I figured now would be a great time to start a new blog post. Why not do one on my birthday. With dealing with the COVID 19 pandemic no one can celebrate the way they want. Here it is April and I’m excited this year for my birthday, I’m usually excited but last year I wasn’t really thrilled.

Last year was a milestone birthday for me so I wasn’t really trying to face the music. Although this year I didn’t have any issues with becoming a year older, It’s so weird. I can’t really go anywhere to celebrate with everything being closed due to the pandemic. Yes, my birthday felt like any other day but I did enjoy it. I took a few days off from work like I always do. I got up on Saturday morning and decided to wash my hair.

It was really cold Saturday morning the temperature was in the 30’s. My phone started ringing off the hook but I decided not to answer because I was in the middle of doing my hair. My mom, sisters, aunts, and cousins just kept calling until they decided to call my husband since I wasn’t answering the phone.

Once I finished my hair and got dressed I went and called everyone back. We did a video call using the house party app. Which we then decided to use zoom because it was so many of us on the call. I definitely enjoyed talking with family and being able to see them although we all weren’t in the same state. The benefits of technology.

We definitely talked for a few hours. My husband made breakfast and I spent most of the day kicking back and relaxing. We ordered take out from Olive Garden, I bought a couple of Virtual Reality games and my husband and daughter bought me a cake and sang happy birthday to me. What more could I ask for? I enjoyed the day. I’m thankful to God for waking me up every day and allowing me to see another year. I feel blessed and happy.

Later on that night I was back on the house party with a few of my friends and we talked, laughed, and had birthday shots to help me celebrate my day. I spent most of my day with family friends and I can’t complain, because I had a great day, I got everything I wanted.

One thing for sure is that this will be one birthday to look back on.
