Well, two days ago I celebrated my first birthday away from home. My family has never been very big on celebrating birthdays so I wasn't really worried about missing anything. But the one tradition my mom has always kept is waking me up at six in the morning to wish me happy birthday and tell me how much she loves me (because it was 6:00 in Florida when I was born in Sweden).
Anyways, on my birthday, at six a.m., I woke up to Emily jumping on my bed, wishing me happy birthday. She had driven all the way down from Aspen Grove to take me to breakfast! Isn't she the best? I seriously LOVE her. So I was just telling her how funny it was that she came at six right when my mom called me to tell me happy birthday at precisely 6:05 a.m. Thanks, Mom, for keeping the tradition alive. And thanks also to Marissa & Karen for waking up at such a ridiculous hour to come with me to breakfast.
Actually, I would like to give a special shout out to Marissa Lang for being my friend, taking me shopping, teaching me the Hannah Montana dance, and treating me like a princess on my birthday.
I had a a great first "independent" birthday with my friends and a special thanks to all my friends and family who called me from all over the world to wish me happy birthday and sent me birthday cards and packages. I less than three all of you! <3
