So I love birthdays. If you remember my feelings about Christmas, then this probably comes as no surprise. Some may think birthdays are just a day you get a free meal and a few celebratory posts on your Facebook wall. However, I believe if you have a reason to celebrate, then all the more reasons to drink champagne and dance on the tables. I’m only kidding…kind of.
But really, birthdays are special to me. They are time to reflect on the year and to look ahead at the future. Also a time to eat yummy cake and to do something memorable with the people you love. Even though I fear getting older and leaving behind youthfulness, I have and always will love going all out for birthdays – including my own! Yup, I’ll be turning 25 on Saturday. I am a little terrified of admitting that I’ve lived a quarter of a century, but instead of getting all sappy and worried about wrinkles, I’ve decided to embrace and celebrate it. That’s why I’ve decided to make this a celebratory week on the blog. I’ll be posting everyday this week with something birthday related and it starts today with a Birthday in a Box giveaway!
I love making others feel special on their birthdays, so I want you celebrate my birthday with me wherever you are! Some of these things you’ll be able to use for your own birthday or a birthday for someone you love. Included in this giveaway are almost all the things you need to make a birthday awesome (friends and booze not included). The winner will receive 10 birthday cards (with envelopes) designed by yours truly, a ‘Happy Birthday’ banner, Sally Hansen nail polish, EOS lip balm, birthday candles, a Bella candle, ‘Cheers’ champagne glasses, balloons, and a 5×7 framed print all wrapped up in a pretty box!
