In 5 days I turn 28 years old. When I have a birthday, I usually go all out. Go big or go home is my birthday motto. Remember this? I also share this special day with the holiday Cinco de Mayo. I’m still not sure what we’re actually celebrating but all I know is that I love a good margarita and can down any basket of tortilla chips in front of me.
Thanks to pinterest, it makes birthday shopping a lot easier (hear that husbands?). While searching through my 1,449 pins of things I want, I started to realize that I certainly don’t need anything. At all. I have a whole basement of just STUFF that has no purpose except to make me feel crazy. I then remembered a site Dan’s Aunt Cathy sent me a few weeks ago called “The Birthday Project”. Essentially a woman on her 38th birthday did 38 random acts of kindness. So for this 28th birthday I plan to participate in this project and do 28 random acts of kindness.
I hesitated in even writing this blog post because I definitely don’t want it to come across as “look at me!”. I suppose I’m posting this because the idea really inspired me and maybe it will inspire you too. I will however be ordering one of those jumbo margaritas and at least 2 baskets of chips in honor of my birth. And you are free to join me.
