I love birthdays in our house. They are never forgotten or looked over. They are celebrated with loud singing, ripping of gift wrap, and wishing on candles. Our traditions are so strong that a birthday wouldn't feel real without them. For me, it was lunch with my dad, phone calls from both grandparents, and a family party after dinner. And this year, it's the first seriously celebrated birthday since the adoption.
The other things on my list? Get my license. Start my photography business. Go on a roadtrip - with or without my family. Meet Kiley. Get straight A's second semester. Travel to Ethiopia again.
Maybe that's why I like my January birthday. It's like New Year's all over again.
My sixteenth year of life - I can't believe it's here.
I think I like birthdays.
p.s. New design? I'm kind of in love. :)
