Day 18: 31

As I approach my 36th year, I can honestly say that I’ve had a lot of memorable birthdays.  There was the year I got tickets to see LLCoolJ.  The year I could legally drink.  The year my beau took me to San Francisco.  Or the year I decided I wasn’t celebrating my birthday at all and decided to spend it volunteering with homeless children.  Today I’ll share with you my 31st birthday. 

It was memorable for a couple of reasons.  It was almost a year after the Ex and I had split.  In that time I had made so many friends.  It was the first year I decided to organize my own birthday party and I can’t tell you how many people came out to celebrate.  It made me realize that I was going to be okay in this big city all by myself.

The other reason, and perhaps more importantly, is that I happened to be in the best shape of my life.  I mean, look at me!  My depression weight loss plan was in full swing.  I was running consistently, attending bootcamp and eating as little as possible. 

No sign of a double chin, wings for arms or tree trunk thighs.  Look at those thighs! 


I want those thighs again.

What was your best birthday?

    I’ve had so many, when I turned twenty-one I told myself for every “big” birthday I would go somewhere I have never been. So for 25 I went to London, 30 Mexico City, 35 Mykonos, 40 Dublin and 45 is creeping up fast and it looks like it might be Australia!
