I realize that the majority of the population observes this day as Valentines Day. But it is much more to me...today is my half birthday! I am officially 25.5 years old today. Happy day for me! I know what you're thinking, "who really celebrates their half birthday?" I'll have you know when I was 14 1/2 my mom threw me a surprise half-birthday party. It is probably the best birthday party I've ever had in my life - it was that good. And I NEVER suspected a thing! My mom is great because she knew I always got the shaft when it came my birthday parties. My real birthday is in August so having a party was not an easy feat. In order to have a summer birthday party you had to compete with everyone's summer vacations. So getting even half of the guest list to show up was a miracle. Not so with a half-birthday party. Fifteen of my friends were there to help me celebrate my 1/2 year - only two couldn't make it. I don't even remember what exactly we did - I just remember it being fun! I do remember cramming all fifteen of us into my mom's little Kia Sportage and having my other brother Brice drop each of my guests off at home, one-by-one. Thanks momma, for making such a fun memory for me!
