Yesterday was a great day. Nothing spectacular happened, but it was a truly great day. I didn't have high hopes for my 25th birthday given that it's the age that getting older kind of starts to suck, but I was happily surprised. There's nothing like an outpouring of love from friends and family to make a girl feel special. Plus, chocolate covered strawberries and pineapple (courtesy of my parents) helped too! It was just the kind of day where I sat back and realized that, while everything may not be perfect, and certainly I still have a lot to learn, I am incredibly lucky to have so many awesome people in my life. Some people don't have that. It's nice to take a minute to just sit back and enjoy that fact. Abounding happiness exists, if you choose to see it.
