Today was a great day. It made me think about many birthdays past, both good and bad.
20 years ago – I was celebrating a wonderful birthday at Disney World, seeing my grandpa and his (now ex) wife for the first time in years, and rocking the awesome socks with sandals look. I only wish I had a picture to share. I met Mickey Mouse, what did I care?
15 years ago – It was snowing. A blizzard. Major. My brother and sister were having sleepovers elsewhere and my mom was mad that I got butter pecan instead of chocolate ice cream.
10 years ago – I was enjoying my first (legal) beer with some coworkers in downtown Flagstaff. I was having a blast. So much so, that I missed my dinner reservations with my (then) fiancee.
5 years ago – I was received my divorce papers in the mail. I had a pretty crappy day all around.
1 year ago- I had a complete meltdown, packed a few things in a bag, got in the car and drove to Flagstaff. Turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time.
Today was a fabulous day filled with fabulous friends. Overall, a great day.
Thanks to all of you that sent wishes or happy thoughts my way. You helped make my day feel special.
