My apologies for the radio silence around here lately. Between a hectic travel schedule, a busy month at work, and the usual adulting responsibilities, my time has been rather tight. But all that hasn’t exactly stopped me from starting the countdown to my birthday (which is now only days away).
In case you forgot (or you’re new around here), I believe in birthday months—and not just for myself, but for everyone. I love my birthday and I believe in treating myself, so, naturally, the festivities start on the first day of November and last throughout the entire month (who’s with me, fellow Scorpios?).
Ever since I was a kid, I took the day off on my birthday and did something fun. One year, it was a tour of the Statue of Liberty, another year it was a weekend at a bed and breakfast in St. Michael’s, Maryland…you get the idea. As I’ve gotten older, my birthday has become less and less about doing something exciting, and more about just doing something special for myself. This year is no exception (stay tuned to see what I have planned).
So far, I’ve kicked the birthday celebrations off by treating myself to a new coat from H&M, having a lovely dinner and dessert at one of my favorite restaurants, and pampering myself with a new ‘do. What could be better than starting my next trip around the sun off in style?
How do you celebrate your birthday month?
