I love my birthday. I never used to... maybe because I was worried about getting old or because I had no one except my parents to make a fuss over me. Now I don’t care about the numbers, and my husband and kids always spoil me, and my friends remember me and I feel loved.
This year (as in many years past) my dad sent me a card with a check in it. I used to put that birthday check up in the bills/checks file and deposit it in the bank without ever doing anything for me. But this year I decided to spend it on me... all $100 of it.
And this is what I bought:
Three Kindle books...
The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay
The Light Between Oceans by ML Stedman
Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King
Next I visited the Pandora store and bought two beads...
And finally with the leftover couple bucks, I bought a delicious Starbuck’s vanilla latte.
It was really fun to pick out things for myself... things I wanted, not things I needed. And I did not feel guilty about it because it was money meant for exactly that purpose. Thanks dad :-)
