21 years OLD

Hello lovelies!!

Today is my BIRTHDAY!! yep, 21 years OLD! I'm feeling so old.

Seriously, last night out of nowhere I just started crying my eyes out. It was just hard for me to realize that today was my birthday and I had to go to work, and it is just another typical day for me. My parents always made such a big deal out of birthdays, I dont remember a birthday ever going by without being celebrated. Every birthday my mom, sisters and dad would wake me up singing happy birthdays and with lots of gifts. I wouldnt go to school that day, I'd go out for breakfast, get my hair and nails done, go shopping and at night My mom would either throw me a party or we would go out with my friends and family. This is my third birthday without my family around, and its not getting any easier.
Dont get me wrong, I'm very thankful that my Lord has blessed me with one more year of life, I'm also thankful for my lovely husband whos trying so hard to make today feel like my birthday (he's been calling me birthday girl all day) and to my lovely friends and family who went out to dinner with me Saturday. I just miss being a kid, and to think that I waisted so much of my time wishing I was an adult.

Birthdays arent the only thing that started getting dull as the years go by. Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving... The holidays are no longer fun. This year I had said to myself, that I would do what I can to make this christmas feel like it once did. But parents and sisters wont be here, so I'm no longer motivated :(

Okay, I need to cheer up! So what always brightens my days? PINTEREST, and in honor of my Birthday today will be all about birthday themes and ideas!

  10. Happy birthday! I think you have nothing to worry about in terms of feeling older- you're so youthful and you have so much life ahead of you. I'm 26 and I remember feeling the same way as I hit 21, 22, 23- but now at 26 I look back on my early twenties as a time where I wasn't as self-assured or happy as I am today. I totally believe that each year is a blessing that affords us more wisdom and clarity. I hope you have a wonderful day, being away from family is tough, but you're in their hearts & minds today.

  11. 21 was one of my favorite birthdays, LOVED finally being 21. This year...at 30...is the first birthday that I've actually felt old, enjoy your 20's, they're awesome!

  14. Happy Birthday!!! I'm so sorry that today isn't having that usual birthday feel to it - it's hard as you get older, especially for such a typically monumentous birthday like your 21st! Mine was a bust too, and I lived to tell about it ;) Make sure you go out and celebrate at least a little, even if it's this weekend, and take pictures. It may not be much but you'll regret it if you don't!! Hope your day just gets better from here on out!

    Happy Birthday! xoxo

  17. girl! you are not alone! I did the very same thing the night before my 21st. My heart literally hurt knowing I wished I was older for so long, now I'm here and wish I could just freeze time forever. I hope you have a wonderful day and just remember how blessed you are! If your husband is anything like mine, i know he is spoiling you rotten today!!
    xo happy birthday!!

  19. Happy Birthday, dear! I know what you mean about wasting your younger days wishing you were an adult. We all did it and it stinks! BUT the good news is today is YOUR special day! It's a day dedicated specifically to celebrating YOUR existence; your own personal holiday... that's gotta make you smile at least a little, right?? I hope that you manage to have a great day and celebrate somehow- you deserve it! And, yes, Pinterest is always a good way to get a little happy going! Happy Birthday again and God bless!

  24. Happy Birthday!! Birthdays do get slightly less exciting as you get older, which is so disappointing! I'm excited to have kids and make a big deal about their birthdays :)

  26. Happy Birthday Camylla! I know it's hard to celebrate without family around, but you can still be proud to say that your are now officially legal, if nothing else! haha. But honestly, I hope you have a fabulous day and I hope that you can feel soon that it's your birthday and that you deserve to have a great one. Everyone does! So come home tonight, enjoy your day and celebrate a little! Have a fabulous day!

  27. Happy Birthday to you, Camylla!!! I know how you feel, special days are not as fun as we get older. But once you have kids, it gets fun again! Trust me! In the meantime, eat some yummy food, a giant piece or two of birthday cake and spoil yourself!!
