7 Ways to Get Free Stuff on Your Birthday

Today I've turned 26 years young! ^_^ I've never felt more like an adult than I do today! June is a busy time. Many chapters end and begin in June. I can't tell you how many people I know that have birthdays in June! Between the fact that there are already so many birthdays, and birthday parties at that, and the fact that we are so busy around here preparing for our summer dance camp, and also coming off the heels of having had Ballet Magnificat's 30th year reunion celebration this past weekend, I feel like any special birthday celebrating for my birthday has fallen through the cracks. Oh well, maybe that's just an indicating factor that infers I really am becoming an adult. Do all adults stop celebrating birthdays? Most of the adults in my family have stopped celebrating. I wonder at what age their celebrating ceased? I don't feel very optimistic right now. Do you ever have year's when you feel sad about growing old like this?
Even though there is no time or friends to throw a birthday party for me this year, here is something Optimistic! Today at ballet, my friends did take the time to surprise me by decorating my 'Barre Spot.'

How sweet! My 'Birthday Barre Spot' ; The place I stand at in ballet class during barre, was decorated with some streamers, a balloon butterfly creation, a plate of cookies and candy, an AWESOME Kalanchoe plant and some sweet cards.

  1. Wow I didn't realise so many companies were generous on birthdays! I know some restaurants give you free ice cream. We used to take advantage of that hehehe!

    BTW happy belated birthday! It's weird as you get older some people go all out for theirs and others do nothing. But I find most people forgot all together bahahaha!

    1. Thanks for the belated birthday wishes!!! :)
