Double Star Birthday!

I am now a 24 year old. Weird.
On the days approaching my day, people kept asking, "what are you going to do for it?" "What do you want to do?"
Answer: Dunno, sleep?

Luckily, the people who helped me ring in my own personal new year recognized it. On Tuesday, my Dad came down and took me to Kuba Kuba and then out to see True Grit. Such a good time. Dad and I caught up, and spent some quality time relaxing. The next morning I woke to the sounds of Facebook notifications on my phone from friends wishing me a happy birthday. I'm so blessed that that many people thought about me!

On my big day, Carl, Dad, and I went and got birthday breakfast burritos. Best decision. After that we went and bough a strap for the camera my Dad gave me (will elaborate on this later). Then it was coffee with the lovely Bernedette, and saying goodbye to my dad. The rest of the day Carl and I watched Mad Men, and snuggled up while I tried to get my energy up. That night he took me out to a very very nice dinner at Mamazu's. I had never been there before, but now i see the hype. It was so cozy, and the food was indescribable. Such a sweet man.

The end of my day some friends came over with birthday brownies! I couldn't have asked for a better day. I got to see all of my favorite people, relax a bit, and eat some amazing food and goodies.

Now, what to do with that camera...
I've decided to start my own 365 project. I will soon be uploading my pictures on Flickr soon. i've decided that the theme of my project will be "It's the Little Things." I am running with the idea that life should be lived one day at a time, and it is the little things that make it special. It will be a challenge, but I am looking forward to it.
Once i've gotten things sorted out with my project I will post the link here!
