Last week I celebrated my birthday.

At 24, I realize I hit the age where birthdays aren’t as big a deal as they used to be.

Sure, I still love all the happy birthday messages from everyone but I don’t really need a big party anymore.

I think part of the reason I feel this way is that over my last two birthdays, I haven’t seen all of my family like in years past.

Before Covid-19, Every birthday was a chance for my family to get together.

One of my sisters birthdays is April 25th so our parties the last few years have been combined with all our family.

It’s always been fun having everyone around, laughing, playing games and eating burgers but the last few years have just been my parents and my brother and sister in law who live in the same house.

It’s been a great way to celebrate in its own way.

This year, I had siblings do a drive by with the nieces and nephews who all made cards for me.

It was nice to see them quickly and still make an effort to celebrate my birthday.

I enjoyed a tasty KFC dinner with my parents on my birthday and then my mom made my favourite dinner the following night as a cherry on top.

I’m really grateful for all the ways my birthday was recognized.
Now here’s to being 24!

I just hope at this point things are back to normal before I’m 25!
