23 already?!

I woke up this morning to find it was February 11, 2011- thus making me 23 years old today. It seems like just yesterday, it was my Strawberry Shortcake birthday party and I was dreaming of the day it would be my 16th birthday. Next thing you know, I'm turning 16 and finally getting my hands on my own set of car keys and a LICENSE, but still couldn't wait till I could stay out past 11:00. Before I knew it, I was 18 with a 12:00 curfew and feeling the sense of freedom, still I couldn't wait to turn 21 and celebrate in true fashion, legally! Finally, the big "2-1", I must admit my 21st birthday was amazing, from what I can remember. And now.... i'm 23?!?! Waking up this morning, to balloons and birthday cards from my parents, having enough money to actually afford to go out and celebrate, gathering with friends tonight for drinks and tapas, and my boyfriend heading my way from Birmingham to take me to lunch and shower me with love and gifts- I have to say, aging past 21 isn't quite as painful as I thought- thanks to friends, family, my boyfriend, and lots of positivity (and wrinkle cream) :)

Thank you everyone for making my birthday a special one!
