And just like that, it’s my birthday.
I know this is nothing out of the ordinary, but I LOVE BIRTHDAYS. It must have something to do with being a twin, but I always have demanded that my birthdays are extra special. My middle name should be “high expectations.” I’m half kidding.
This year is no Sweet 16, 21st or another milestone like that, but I have to say turning 24 feels freaking awesome. I finally feel like this is the age where I’m no longer a recent college student but I’m still young enough to make bad decisions and blame it on my young blood. It’s the best of both worlds.
So today, my plans are to take a birthday run by myself along the lake, grab the best fish tacos in Chicago from Big Star, spend time with my family at a local BYOB Argentinan steakhouse, and have friends over to play True American until we’re goofy enough to go listen to live country music at a nearby bar. 24 is looking grand.
Have a WONDERFUL weekend, all, and I’ll fill you in with a recap on Monday!
