A Very Happy Un-Birthday
I guess it might be a little silly to celebrate half birthdays, but I'm alright with that. I try to find any excuse to celebrate or to make an ordinary day a little extra special, because those kinds of things make me happy. I think to celebrate today, I might take Daniel with me to the gluten-free bakery and buy myself a cupcake. (Jaymz will be at work until very late this evening.)
I used to have a friend whose favorite holiday was Groundhog Day, which is one of those days that everyone knows about, but it isn't widely and actively celebrated. My half birthday falls pretty close to Groundhog Day, so I can't help but think about her when these days come around each year.
I'm curious, have you ever celebrated your half birthday? Are there any special days or holidays you celebrate that most people don't? Do you have any special rituals you practice or foods you make when you want to make an ordinary day into a fabulous day? I'd love to hear all about it!
