At my age (over 21) it is not correct for me to enjoy my birthday. I alway have loved birthdays. Mine and everyone elses, especially when there is cake.
I love the idea we have a day to reflect on the last year and the joys and sadness. I love the idea there is a day just for me.
I love presents, and this year I have asked for new Iced Tea Glasses, and nail polish. Maybe a neckless.
So it is not about the presents, it is about the reflection....and the cake.
