Good morning loves!
It’s finally here again, my birth month! This post comes a day late from the start of the month because I spent yesterday with my mom spying on the kiddo during his first ever big school field trip. Anyway, I’m extra excited because this year is a leap year and I’m turning 29 this year, and since I feel that the whole of February belongs to me I get to celebrate turning 29 for 29 full days! Which leads me to introduce my February photo blog project, 29 DAYS, 29 WAYS TO CELEBRATE “ME”. Yes, I am attempting another photo blog project, and yes, I plan to see it through this time. First post for that will be up real soon.
People who are close to me know that I take birthdays seriously, and that means I can get extra bratty during the love month. I’ve gone through moments of seriously dramatic birthday blues when things didn’t go my way, and the closer it got to my actual birthday, the more intense I became. I like to spend February with important people in my life, and this year I will make sure I get to do just that. I’ve decided that this February HAS to be great because it’s my last year as a 20-something. It’s also my first year as a Mrs, and that makes it even more special. So yes, I am celebrating ME this month, the first step on my journey towards truly owning my year (separate blog post on that real soon too).
February 2012 started out absolutely wonderfully with a day with my mom. It had been a while since my mom and I had a relaxing worry-free day together, and I’m glad that yesterday turned out to be an enjoyable road trip and food fest for the two of us. We’re both super happy and that we were able to see Tristan enjoy his first adventure sans parents and guardians. We got to bond and talk about life in general and plans of the future, just like we used to do when we both had more free time on our hands. I honestly grew up thinking that all mother-daughter relationships were like ours, so when I discovered that not everyone is as close to their moms as I am to mine, I learned to cherish our relationship more. I’m glad I got to spend day one with my mom. I believe that’s how it should be. After all, it really was her and me from day one of my existence.
So today is day two and I woke up pleasantly early to a nice cool, quiet morning. A wonderful surprise greeted me on my Blackberry today – an email from Discovery Country Suites regarding our reservation for my birthday weekend:
Dear Ms. Cuyugan,
A pleasant evening to you, yes Ma’am you are already booked on Feb. ** to ** however there’s a slight modification, instead of Andalucia Suites you are given a free upgrade to Nara Permiere Suites.
Absolute love! I’ve been dreaming about booking a room at Discovery for a long time, so I jumped at the chance when I saw a promotion on Deal Grocer. We booked it right away as my birthday destination, and I chose the best of the available rooms. Who would’ve thought I’d end up getting something way better? I’m glad I didn’t hesitate to book the trip, otherwise I would’ve missed out on such a great opportunity.
I’m off to a good start with February so far. I’m so looking forward to the rest of the day, and the coming 27 days. It’s gonna be a great month, I’m sure.
