This past week I celebrated my birthday and for the first time, I really did not feel the need to go out and paint the town red or green (my favorite color, btw.) Instead, I opted for a quiet day filled with love and tranquility. I decided that I was not going to let anything bring me down or steal my birthday joy – shucks, it only comes once a year and it’s mine so I was not going to give my day away. The younger I get (wink, wink) the more I realize that I do not need much to be
happy or to be out to about. I’m such a home-body that I would be okay with calling my close friends and family over to hang out and enjoy some of my favorite dishes with me.
I did not have a cake or a cupcake so there weren’t any candles to commemorate the occasion, but if there were it would be more than sixteen, hence the title. Who knows my birth month is not officially over so I could still have my candles. Plus, I cannot forget to celebrate the fact that I finally got my driver’s license – no, I didn’t get my license when I was sixteen. C’mon, I live in New York and I could travel from one borough to the next without a car. But, now, I have a choice-it’s always good to have a choice!
Thanks to all who sent their well wishes, texted their love and even called to sing ‘Happy Birthday’. I greatly appreciated it. Now, without further ado, here is the outfit that I wore for breakfast on my birthday. I hope you enjoy! Happy Birthday to my fellow Virgos! <3
