It's my birthday!

It's my birthday!

You know, I have a friend who about had a complete melt-down when she turned 25. She couldn't believe she was a quarter of a century old. I thought she was crazy! I have lost contact with this girl and wonder what she is thinking now that she is over 40....
Me? I love birthdays. Bring 'em on. They just keep getting better.
Do you love birthdays like I do, or do you see them as one step closer to the grave?

Help me celebrate by entering to win a
 $10 Amazon Gift Card to buy whatever YA book you'd like.

Happy b-day! Birthdays don't really mean anything anymore. Just one year older, not scary, not exciting. lol

I haven't really done anything special to celebrate my birthday in a really long time, so they aren't that important to me. Unless it's my nephew's birthday, then it's time to party!

I did all four entries :) My birthday is in May. May also holds my middle sister's birthday, as well as my youngest sister's birthday, a very dear friend's bday, my niece's bday, and Mother's Day. We call it a month long celebration of awesomeness! Thanks for the opportunity. richnkathy718 (at) msn (dot) com

Like you, my birthdays only keep getting better. I'm horrified by the number each year, but I have so much fun it's nearly negligible.

About b-days, holidays, and other special occasions, hubby has changed my thinking. It is his belief that every day should be special and not just some certain days in a year.
