Photo Diary: Birthday Fun!!

My birthday turned out to be completely wonderful! As most of you know, I've always been horrendously terrible with my birthdays. I freak out, get really bummed, pout about disappointments, and start worrying about all sorts of silly things. A few weeks ago, I looked at my planner and realized that my birthday was dangerously near. YIKES! I start to bite my nails & stress out. What a spaz, right?? 

My birthday ended up being absolutely magical! I was awakened on the morning of my birthday to loveliest smell of something delicious cooking in the kitchen. Minutes later, my boyfriend appeared in my room with a stack of cinnamon pancakes topped with colorful candles. He quickly sang through "Happy Birthday" and helped me blow out the candles. It was probably the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me! My family let me sleep in while they made preparations for the evening. I was actually a little anxious about what they were planning. Early in the evening, they called me into the kitchen and surprised me a little dinner party.  It was such an amazing celebration! My heart just glowed with love & adoration for all of the people in my life. 

Here are some of the photos I snapped throughout the day:

Apollo wanted to be the first to wish me a happy birthday!
We decided to get snowcones!



Yummy!! Blue coconut is my favorite flavor! It's a good sign if your entire mouth turns bright blue!

Fun with bubbles! 



My birthday cake!!

Zeth bought me the most adorable owl mirror in the world! 


Pink birthday roses!

What a lovely day!!

Happy Belated Birthday!

I use to be real bummed everytime my birthday would come to--until this (pass) May I realized, "It's whatever YOU make it, Tuesdai." And so I did :)
