Today is my 27th birthday. It hardly seems real when I look at the number.
How is it possible that I'm 27 years old?!
Anyway, so far today has been...bittersweet.
I dropped Sean off this morning to catch a flight to the States, as he is serving as a representative of his company at the funeral of one of his friends. I actually attended the memorial service on-post today, hence why this birthday has been bittersweet.
Of course I would prefer my husband to spend my birthday with me, but when I thought about this year and the deployment, I didn't even expect to have him here at all, so it doesn't bother me as much as it might have in the past. The fact is that I have him alive and well when there are lots of women out there that don't. So..for that I am grateful.
Anywho...I'm celebrating tonight with a few friends at our favorite sushi place and I'm sure I'll have a glass (or two) of sake. Other than that I have no birthday plans, but I'm ok with that. I'm not as excited about my birthdays as I used to be.
Also I'd like to say Happy Birthday to a fellow mil-spouse blogger MTM over at MTM-To-Be. I had no idea until today we shared a birthday.
