Happy Birthday To Me!

Tomorrow is my birthday! Unlike every other year, I'm keeping it extra low-key with my new friends. Most years I'm surrounded by people I really care about and have grown to love over the years. Some of my best birthday memories are from times where I got to experience true friendship and love with the people who mean the most to me. Since I am right in the middle of my first year in college, all of my friends are brand new and we're experiencing different dynamics on days we've always spent with the same people.The one thing that will stay absolutely the same, though, is my obsession with cute cards to commemorate significant events. I love Hartland Brooklyn's birthday card designs, especially as someone who would much rather have a delicious burger over a piece of cake any day. The different birthday card designs on the HB website can go with any personality. There's something for your girly-girl little sister who loves flower crowns and Coachella as well as you spunky best friend who loves to laugh. I still plan on wearing my signature "birthday outfit," which as you probably guessed by the name, is the outfit I wear on my birthday every year. Nothing says "pay attention to me! I'm important! It's my birthday!" like a pale pink skater skirt with a bright blue cashmere sweater. Instead of having an actual celebration I'm just going to spend quality time with the friends I have with me here in Nashville. And instead of baking like I do almost every single year, I'm going to stop by Gigi's Cupcakes in West Nashville and get a dozen mini cupcakes for everyone who spends my special day with me. A little goes a long way when it comes to birthdays for me.
