A week full of celebrations.
My childhood best girlfriend is getting married in October, so our friend Lauren, and I put together her bridal shower last weekend. And by Lauren and me, I mean, I was her helper but Lauren was the true mastermind.
I like to be at parties, but I don’t have quite the same sense of pulling together all the party elements like our pal Lauren. I kind of want to rent her out.
Maybe she can plan the bridal showers, and I can teach all the ladies BodyStep.
Anyway, the shower was a success, and it was an honor to celebrate Marie. We met in creative writing class in high school. One of our first assignments was to write a spy novel. I wonder if Marie remembers that. I’ll make sure I bring this up on her wedding day.
I continued celebrating that week with my 28th birthday. My parents surprised me with a gift certificate to get a manicure and pedicure, Dan bought me a Wacom tablet, and I treated myself to RPM training.
I should write something about turning 28 because unlike all my previous birthdays, I feel a profound sense of self and where I am and what I want. After 28 years of wondering what’s next, it’s nice to feel I know what’s now.
