Guess who turned 23 yesterday? Me!
People might think being 23 is still young, but come on, who are you guys kidding? It is time to gain real responsibilities, face the future and actually act on whatever it is that you have just started planning earlier this year.
But being 23 is not so bad. You’re allowed to go to bars with a more mature looking face, people wouldn’t have second guessed you whether you’re already 21 or not, and you’re practically legal to do anything, even go to jail! Lol.
Being born in January makes you gain hope of your life earlier than anyone else, (well, unless you’re born earlier than me). I feel like it gives me a new perspective, like I can foresee the future and what lies ahead of me. Because I was looking forward to my birthday, and now that it is over, I can look forward to something else, something bigger.
My birthday celebration yesterday was phenomenal. I am gifted with an incredible husband that knows me inside out, that made it so memorable I can cry of happiness while reminiscing about it again.
He was the first to wish me Happy Birthday at 12am, and then we spend the whole night just talking and talking until 4am. I love when we spend time talking before we sleep, it’s just so relaxing for me. That morning we woke up late, but not too late, then we went to brunch at the Penn Stater Hotel, called the Gardens Restaurant. They offered a buffet which was so tasty, oh my god I feel hungry now.
Right after brunch, he pampered me with a couple’s massage which is pretty awesome. I haven’t had the best massage experience so far, but this, hands down, the best massage I have ever felt. They even have me a facial therapy, which was so relaxing, I almost slept the way through. The place was right in State College, called the Artemis Massage Studio. I immediately fell in love with the place due to its ambiance and the environment, I could just spend hours there and just lay down waiting for someone to give me a massage. It was incredible, enough said.
Not enough with the surprises, Hafid pulled the best surprise yet last night when he blindfolded me and bring me to this amazing place to celebrate my birthday dinner with all of my friends. Oh my, I was so shocked and surprised that they planned it so beautifully and the decorations were so on point, it was the best and happiest celebration ever.
Imagine being blindfolded right after you got in the car, and didn’t know where you were heading and, suddenly, surprised! Everyone was there, without you even knowing the slightest hint about it. Well, initially I thought Hafid was bringing us for dinner, just the two of us, like we usually do, but it was a surprise to find out that everybody is there, celebrating it with you. It was the best feeling, ever.
Words cannot describe the situation was last night, I might just pour in some pictures. Enjoy! Thank you again to those who wish and celebrating it with me. It was the best.
