i'm a big fan of birthdays. i love my friend's birthdays, family member's birthdays, stranger's birthdays and my own birthday. i believe that birthdays are special and are an important day. birthdays come every year, like clock work. but i think that makes them even more amazing. i believe in tradition, celebration and never ending fun. so every year, i try to live birthdays up for those other people and when the time comes, myself.
this year was a good birthday, i was lucky enough to celebrate my birthday with most of my favorite people.
it began with a little jaunt up to salt lake with my family. we had the traditional birthday dinner at cheesecake factory for my absolute favorite meal and birthday dessert.
afterwards, we shopped in salt lake for a while then spent the night at the Little America for a birthday getaway. the next morning as my sister Rondi and I were eating breakfast, two rockstars sat right next to us. literally. the band steel train was in town for the candlelight serenade festival and we were lucky enough to be graced by the presence of two of the band members. made rondi's morning...
after a nice day at the pool and time with the fam, i came back to provo to hang out with my friends. there was a bike ride in the blazing sun, pot painting at color me mine, lots of yummy food and finally a little bit of breakfast with my closest friends.
much much thanks to cami for arranging all the fun,
all my other friends who contributed,
jeff for keeping me occupied all day,
and my family for making sure it was a good time.
