I did it! Please join everyone else in congratulating me on reaching twenty-six years of age. While that in and of itself might not be much of an accomplishment, this last year sure has been. As you all know, and are maybe tired of hearing about, I married my co-blogger and the all-around lovely lady, Sarah. Since this past year was such a big one, you may be a bit worried about me. You may be wondering what my twenty-seventh year could possibly bring about to top all the goings on of twenty-six. Well nothing, of course, could top the wedding, but I assure you that’s not going to stop me from livin’!
Starting Things Right: My Stupendous Birthday.
For me, birthdays are pretty nostalgic. I like to think about the past year, sure, but also about past birthdays. This fact is why I generally eschew a cake and insist on having a birthday cookie. At some point in time, I must have received a birthday cookie and decided it had the winning formula of taste, irony, and quirkiness that I was looking for in my birthday food. Well ok, it’s really just that I like cookies, and really big cookies are even cookier!
Lest you worry that all I did for my birthday was eat a giant cookie, Sarah was kind enough to document a few of my presents *just in case* I wanted to share them on this blog.
Oh, the excitement….
Lately Sarah and I have been trying to take better lunches to work, and to do that you need a good way to carry all of your stuff. We’re going to try out these bento box and jar combos and see what happens. I’m sure you’ll here more about these things.
Check it out, this is a tiny fancy bottle. It also turns out to be really tasty. Highly recommended.
I also got some clothes and the watch from my Christmas wishlist, but unfortunately I don’t have pictures of any of that. Yet.
While I didn’t have a big celebration, it was a great birthday because I got to spend it with my family. And a giant cookie. I’ll put this one in the win column.
