Birthday Month

Leave a comment

153157083It’s been a fantastic birthday month! But, whew, a bit exhausting. Good thing it only comes around once a year!

Seriously, how can people only celebrate for one day—there’s just too much fun to be had! Here’s a quick recap of my month. You’ll see a few items below that, in reality, have very little to do with me and my birthday. But if they occur during September and are super fun, I consider them a gift. 😉

 

August 30-September 2:

Kicked off birthday month in Clarkesville, Tennessee, with Daron and Margaret, two of my favorite people. It was a relaxing weekend, and just what I needed. I always need more time with them, and adorable little Truman.

September 5:

Lunch with Jessica at Zoe’s Kitchen.

September 7:

Mani/pedi with Chianti! This is one of my favorite gifts I give myself for my birthday each year.

September 8:

Busy, busy day! Volunteered in the children’s ministry, then Amy and I headed south of the city to Serenbe for lunch at The Farmhouse and some shopping. Loved it there. Would totally recommend the drive, and I plan on heading back really soon. Then back home that night for Mark and Meier’s going away party. Really fun to see lots of friends that night, too, even if they weren’t there for me. 😉

September 10:

Dinner with Michelley at Marlow’s Tavern.

September 12-13:

Headed to Tampa for work as we began the Orange Tour. Coincidentally, had my three-year anniversary with Orange while there.

September 17:

Not For Sale Georgia’s Reading Group:

Any excuse to head to Dr. Bombay’s for chai tea is a good day, but we had a great discussion about the book, Half The Sky. If you get the chance, please read it!

September 18:

Lunch with Ben and Mark at Jim ‘N’ Nick’s. It was a good-bye lunch for Mark, but hey, still in birthday month!

September 21:

A favorite—the big screen re-release of The Wizard of Oz, one of my all-time favorites! It was amazing in 3D! Good thing it wasn’t crowded, because I quoted and sang to myself the whole time.

September 22:

Jana was in town, so I went with her, Kat and Damon to Passion City Church and dinner.

September 23:

Surprise—Karen was in town! Fun reunion with her, Michelle and Ben at Antico Pizza. Serious yum.

September 24:

Harmony at the Alliance Theater with Sara. Great show, co-written by Barry Manilow! My co-worker, Brandon, was in the ensemble, so it was really fun to see him on stage. We also went to an awesome vegetarian/vegan restaurant called Cafe Sunflower.

September 25:

Low key night of hanging out at my place with Amy. Always great conversation.

September 26-30:

Recouping from a fun and busy birthday month! Sheesh, does my apartment need cleaning!

 

Thank you to everyone who was a part of my birthday month! It was a great one for sure!
