Another birthday has come and gone. I am another year older and hopefully more mature, skilled, and experienced than I was this time last year! Now I am one more year into that most mysterious of decades, "the twenties". Birthdays are strange things; we have them only every twelve months, but that one day goes on to define a part of us for the next twelve.
On the evening of my birthday, I went to a nice restaurant with my mom, dad, and best friend. I enjoyed a delightful pasta and chicken dish, then went to survey some Christmas decor in another part of the building. We three ladies took a drive to look at Christmas lights, then came home for dessert. A few hours before all this, the afternoon had found me trying to figure out what to wear for my night out...
After some consulting with Mom and mind-changing on my part, I finally decided on an outfit that had an Edwardian/Victorian flair. Mom, Moriah and I were dressier than most other ladies in the restaurant, as our area tends to keep fashion quite casual. A girl has to dress up for her birthday sometimes though (unintentional Fiddler on the Roof reference)!
My ensemble's starting piece was a silky floral maxi skirt. After some indecision, I decided to wear it with my dotted black blouse. Over this, I wore a trim blazer (it ended up staying on most of the evening, as I was cold!). I used a shiny black belt to polish the look, and accessorized with a sweet heart and rose cameo necklace that a friend gave me. Completing the outfit were classic black pumps and a green clutch.

What do you like to do for your birthday?
Do people in your area keep things casual or dress up?
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18
