Hello there! ♥
My birthday is coming up so soon- August 1st! I've written about it before, but I actually really hate my birthday. It's never been a fun day for me. I'm not one for having attention on myself, so a whole day where everyone celebrates me? It makes me so uncomfortable! I also always get my expectations up really high for the day (even though I try not to), but usually am let down. Because after all, it is just a day like any other day, but I just happened to be born on it.
This year I'm especially nervous and kind of dreading things because it's my 21st, which is such a 'big' birthday that has a lot of meaning to it. But to me, again...I don't want to make a big deal out of things. I think I have decided to have a drink for my 21st though. Something super light and feminine-- I'm shooting for a birthday cake martini or a chocolate mudslide. It'll be my first alcoholic drink ever! Not sure how I feel about that yet.
I've been very stressed out lately and things have just been mounting...hoping everything calms down soon. Between working a ton of hours at my job in a more stressful position, helping my mom with her broken leg, house sitting, preparing for Italy, and trying to keep up with this blog...I'm just sinking. I feel like sleeping a lot to avoid everything I have to do, but I know that won't help anything. Praying for strength and peace! x
With much love, Lauren.
