Birthday was yesterday, and I've officially hit the quater-century mark. It's so unreal, I can't believe I'm already 25!!
Tuesday, the day before my birthday, I had a hair appointmnet. After almost two years of keeping up with my brown/golden highlights, I've decided to go black for a while. I just don't have the time or money to keep up with them right now, and low-maintenance hair was a much needed change. At first, it felt like I had a wig on, and I'm still getting use to seeing myself with such dark hair again. After the appointment, I went out to an early birthday dinner with childhood friends Kate and Ali, and Kate's boyfriend Brian. We all have such busy lives that I only get to see them about two to three times a year--usually for birthdays. Last time we met up was for both of thier birthdays back in August, so it was great seeing them and catching up.
Birthday day at work went amazingly smoothly, which was especially unusual for the first of the month. Instead of throwing a party this year, I opted to just do dinner with all my wonderful friends. Had a reservation for 25 at Claim Jumper, and every seat was filled. It was nice that everyone was able to come celebrate with me--thanks you guys!
So, this is it. I am officially half way to thirty. Twenty to twenty-five has brought many memories, friends, adventures, lessons, and accomplishments. It was full of love and loss, learning and growing, and I'm confident that twenty-five to thirty will be no less exciting and fullfilling. So here's to the second half of my twenty-something years!
