First of all, thank you sooooooooooo much for all of your comments! I'm so touched and happy to know that there are actually people reading my blog :'). I'm so excited to be following so many new blogs now because I love reading yours too!
As I mentioned before, I turned 21--the age where you are legally allowed to drink alcohol in America. While I'm feeling old and nostalgic that I will never be legally forbidden from drinking again, I had a wonderful birthday. I'm just really glad I got to celebrate it with many awesome people. While planning my birthday activities, I seriously had a moment where I was just thinking "wow.. do I really know and care about this many people? I have this many friends?" haha.
My boyfriend and I celebrated earlier because he went on a trip for his break. He got me super pretty flowers! I love the variety and the aroma is absolutely breathtaking. And best of all, they are actually still alive! I always feel kind of sorry whenever Mr.H gives me flowers because I am horrible at taking care of them and they usually die within a few days.....
We went to dinner (of course how else will I be happy :P) at a fancy-ish Itallian restaurant. I tried the risotto, which I have been wanting to try for a really long time, and he got chicken Parmesan. And... crabcakes for the appetizer!
And two days after, I was finally done with exams and could celebrate! I went to dinner with about 8 of my girlfriends (love them soo much <3) and due to respect for their privacy, I won't post any pictures up. But... I did, not surprisingly at all, took pictures of my food ;P.
And this was the look of the night... Warning: extreme closeup of my face.
This was definitely one of my favorite birthdays! I still can't believe I'm 21.. and well, only getting older. But I should really see that as a blessing because being alive is a miracle and not everyone gets to turn one year older.
My life might not be the most exciting to some people, but I'm really trying to enjoy each moment. The cliche "life is short" blahblah speech is really true and sometimes it scares me how fast time pasts by. So I will try to take more pictures, create more memories, and reflect on those memories so that time just doesn't pass by.
I really need to do some final packing now because it's spring break for me!! I'm going to visit my friend near Chicago.. so expect even more food pictures in the future... :D (but not just food pictures, I promise).
