Of the things I don't like, celebrating my own birthday is somewhere at the top of the list (not quite sure which one is the winner, but top contenders for the coveted number one spot are definitely my own birthday, getting up early, spiders, and winter). I do have mixed feelings about my b'day: on the one hand, I am grateful to be in good health and being able to add another year. On the other hand, I always feel that the year went by too quickly and I could have accomplished more. And 33... Does that sound old or what?
The day started with a morning walk combined with some grocery shopping (cheese! prosecco! pie!). I almost never buy flowers for myself, but I think I did deserve some on my birthday. So I treated myself to ranunculus, my favourite kind of flowers, next to peonies. I had some friends over during the day, and in the evening we had a snack food type of dinner.
Besides birthdays and spiders, I'm also not a big fan of having my picture taken. I did discover I made an accidental selfie though :-)
How do you feel when it comes to celebrating your own birthday?
