Turning another year older has only fueled my need to continue exploring, challenging myself, seeking creative outlets, and devouring good food. I see each year as another opportunity to outdo the previous year. My 20s, thus far, haven’t let me down. My co-workers and I at work have decided that the older you get, you don’t just celebrate “birthdays” anymore. Whereas, they become “birthmonths” – an extended period of celebration, indulgence, and late nights. I want to take that idea and turn it into an entire year of good times! In addition to the “Triple Whammy” party, a countless number of birthday lunches & dinners, here are some other ways I welcomed my 26th year.
