February 19th, 2013 | Quarter of a Century

So the unthinkable happened. I got old. Just suddenly over night one day last week! I know age is just a number but it’s weird to think that I have actually been here a quater of a century now. I think the general population is maturing later too. When I think about 25 year olds that I knew when I was younger, I feel like they had accomplished much more in life. Is it just me, or does anyone else feel the same way some time? They say that the second half of your twenties goes by slower than the first. Well, we’ll see about that.

Anyways age aside I had such a wonderful birthday! I’m so lucky to have such amazing friends, family & co-workers. I couldn’t ask for better people in my life, or could imagine a better birthday. I’m really lucky. Here’s a few snapshots from my day:

The day of my birthday I went with my mom to get my hair & nails done. (A long with a hand massage, which just made me realize how badly I need a full body massage haha!) After we went out for lunch and I had once of the best gluten free burgers I’ve had in a while.

When I got home there was a little surprise waiting for me, one of my best friends who lives over 4 hours away had sent me the prettiest flowers!! It’s so funny how getting flowers can make any day seem so much more special than it already is.

My sister spent 4 hours slaving away to make me the BEST cake. It was a gluten free strawberry cake, with fresh strawberries between the layers and was iced in a ombre rosette pattern. I died.

What would a birthday be without my beloved DAVIDsTEA. I made myself a Birthday Cake tea latte, topped it with a few sprinkles. The best. I also received two teas (1 & 2) , a new bodum travel thermos (which keeps my tea hot for hours by the way!!!), and a set of 4 nobel cups for my birthday. Be-still my old lady heart. I’m in love with every single one.

I also made a trip to my favourite local antique stores. I guess I have a reputation there for being the tea-cup-collecting lady because when I was finally getting ready to check out they surprised me with a stunning pink tea cup with gold detailing as a birthday present.

Oh and this is probably the lamest thing to ask for your birthday… but I got a steamer! I’m so freakin’ excited!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
