I'm wishing I could spend the day here, rather than working. This is Exhibit A in Real Life: Your Birthday Is Not About What You Want. Because if that were the case, I'd just wish myself here:
But since I can neither wish myself anywhere I want in the world, nor can I skip work to play in my own back yard of natural beauty, I'm very happy that I will at least be able to spend the day with these people:
Because those people are my 6 favorite people in the whole wide world, and it doesn't matter if we're here or there or anywhere else. As long as we're together, it's a wonderful way to spend a birthday. I fear my birthdays of family togetherness are numbered, so I'm loving 2015 just a little more because of that.
