Today I wake up a year older. I’m not normally excited about birthdays. This birthday was one that I was particularly not very happy about because this lady was leaving her 20s and turning 30!
A couple of months ago though I decided I was going to embrace it instead of freak out. My twenties were full of wonderful things. I graduated from college, got my first job, got married, purchased my first home, and started my own business. All great and wonderful things. I feel like I lived a lot and learned a lot in my 20s and I’m ready to tackle whatever my 30s will hold.
This birthday I will be doing something I normally don’t do and that’s having a party! I tend to shy away from all attention directed at me so parties in my honor are not my thing, but leaving your 20s is a big deal so a fete is to be had.
My family has been planning it for awhile now and since they know that I don’t enjoy surprises I was told last week that it was in the works and I needed to report to a certain locale in the city this coming Saturday decked in 1920s attire!
Some of my favorite books/movies take place in the 1920s and since I’m leaving my 20s they decided to make it a roaring 20s party.
This all means that today I need to head out and try to find the perfect dress.
I will be channeling Mia Farrow in the Great Gatsby:
And Catherina Zeta Jones from Chicago:
Hopefully I will find something beaded and sparkly!
