On November 26th of 2015 I hit the big 2-1.
I had actually been so excited during all of 2015 for my birthday because there was nothing holding me back anymore! Although I rarely drink, it feels nice to know that I can go out and order a drink if I felt like it. I’m finally a “real” adult.
I didn’t have a wild, crazy 21st birthday like most people do. Instead, I enjoyed my birthday with family, friends and 2 delicious, homemade cakes! This birthday was a special one to me because multiple people in my life definitely took the extra mile to make it a memorable one. I had all my family together to celebrate, and my cousin baked me a delicious chocolate cake that I got to decorate excessively with rainbow sprinkles. My friends drove in the horrible rainy weather on Black Friday to eat korean barbecue for my celebration. And my boyfriend and our close friend spent the entire day baking a rainbow cake for me because they knew I’ve been wanting one for the longest time. I didn’t need grand presents to make me happy or a wild night filled with drinks to make this birthday memorable. I’m blessed with wonderful people in my life, and that’s all I need.
After I celebrated my birthday with family, we went out to korean barbeque the next day. As the night was ending and I was opening gifts, my friend Daniel brought out a cake unexpectedly. I was so shocked when I went in for a slice to learn that the cake was a rainbow cake! For 2 boys with no baking experiences, it was absolutely delicious and came out perfectly!
