You know, I have a lot to be grateful for. I am surrounded by people who love me and while not all of my friends can make my birthday, James, his wife, and my family are coming to make my 30th birthday special.
Mom bought a cornhole game for the outdoors; I think I’ll bring up boardgames for those of us who want to stay in to beat the heat. Boardgames are fun too. 😊
I’m thinking about having a homemade guestbook – a few blank scrapbook pages for people to sign and write well-wishes or anything they feel like. Ah, sentimental Jess is coming out.
I’m also thinking about putting some scrapbooks out from things I did in my 20s. Travel, school, (I have to make a few pages about graduation), and maybe I’ll put out my Happiness Box scrapbooks. I know it sounds silly, but I think it’ll be joyful to share memories from my 20s and what I have to look forward to in my 30s. I’m nowhere near done Happiness Box 2018 scrapbook, but I can share what I have done.
I have photos of me getting pierced and I’m going to put those out too. Maybe I’ll put those photos in with one of the school albums or include it with Wraith and make an alternative mish-mash of body modification in my 20s. I’m sure my aunts and uncles won’t look at them, but my cousins might. No one might, but I love what I did and each thing I had done brought much joy.
In 2011, I started making a yearbook scrapbook about my sophomore year in college. Never finished it, but I have an extra album laying around and I might put what I have done so far in. Or it can be a mish-mash of everything. I’ll do that… I have the knack of being random at times.
My birthday will be fun, regardless.
