A Golden Birthday (and a Giveaway!)

It's my Golden Birthday today! I feel so fortunate to be born on the 31st, because I get to REALLY enjoy this! I know it's silly, celebrating the fact that you're turning the same age as the date of your birth, but it's a little extra special something that those born in the first handful of days in a month don't realize is happening. (Matt was born on the 2nd, so he had nooo idea! Haha)

Golden Birthday!

Last year, turning 30 was surprisingly emotional for me. I didn't think I would be so sentimental about it - I took myself by surprise! I let it get in the way of enjoying things as much as I should have (focusing on the negative things about crossing this milestone in life), so I love that the very next year comes with an extra little something.

I'm writing this in the past (because as you know, we've been unplugged this week), so I really have no idea what we are up to today. Bummer having a birthday on a Monday, amiright? Though I'm sure we've celebrated all weekend! (My family is awesome like that.) In fact, I had a full day of Scrapbooking planned with my Mom on the 29th, and I sure hope that happened! ;)

Definitely on my list today? Picking out my FREE pastry from Panera & coffee from Starbucks! Did you know you could do that? There are hundreds of businesses that offer goodies and freebies on your special day!

Here's a list of 285+ places that treat you just for aging a little bit each year --> Birthday Freebies! I need to comb through it again to make sure I'm getting the most out of this golden day of mine. ;)

I'm off to go enjoy today with my family. But before I go, I have a little birthday gift to raffle off to one of you! Sharing the birthday love!

Want to win a $25 Target Gift Card? Of course you do! ;)

  9. I would use the Starbucks | Free drink or food plus 15% off at the online Starbucks store. How awesome! I can't eat out because of allergies but I can definitely enjoy the heck out of a shaken iced tea lemonade!
