My birthday was almost a week ago (March 9th), and I'm finally getting around to "blogging" about it. It was a good one! Brian made me feel special by dragging out the birthday celebrations over the course of 2 days. We went and ate at a really great sushi place in Charlotte called Nikko. It's definitely my new favorite! (Does anyone else find it funny that I dislike shrimp, but love sushi?) Anyway, my day was also flooded with calls/messages from friends and family. I love it when my family calls and sings happy birthday on my voicemail. It's just hilarious - inevitably someone is giggling as they sing, or singing much louder than everyone else, or in my little nephew's case - making up thier own version of song. I kept the "happy birthday" voicemails on my phone for a few days after March 9th, just so I could listen and laugh again!
Birthdays were always extremely exciting for me until this year. All of the sudden when this 27th birthday arrived I became distinctly more aware of my biological clock. For the first time in my life, I wasn't happy about being a year older. I guess that's how it will be from here on out! I truly thought I wouldn't hit that wall until I was 30 or 40, but I guess I hit it a little early! Not to say I don't enjoy life, or am afraid of getting older - that's not the case. I'm just not excited about the wrinkles forming under my eyes!
