I'm not even going to lie, but was pretty obsessed with finding the perfect dress for my birthday for over a month. I didn't even know where I was going, but figured the right dress would help the process. I know real logical.
But life happens and the million and one ideas of what to do, what to wear, and with whom all went up in smoke the week before. No dress, no waking up at the beach or on a boat, and no boyfriend to enjoy all day. I was not excited anymore. Possibly had a big pity party.
And then it hit me after my girlfriends came to the rescue (both emotionally and physically) that I had it ALL wrong. That sure having a cute birthday dress is great, but focus on what's important-making the most of what you have. No it didn't go the way I had it planned in my head, but I spent the day with amazing friends, found an even better dress, and ended with a little date with my favorite guy.
So here's to a new year focusing on what's important, great friends, and date night's!
