Last Thursday was my 31st birthday. It's been difficult to really celebrate my birthday since my mom passed as the anniversary of her death and my birthday are only 2 days apart. Since I didn't do anything to celebrate the big 3-0 last year, I decided to do 2 things I love this year: go to the horse races and sing karaoke.
If you're not familiar with Lexington, Keeneland is a race track here in town that runs in April and October. I might be biased, but I think it's one of the most beautiful places to experience Thoroughbred racing. I am thankful for David and friends Holli, Tyler, Elizabeth and Amber for hanging out with me, and for Eric for stopping by to say hello.
I had a lot of fun at Keeneland. I ended up winning on several races, which is always more exciting than losing!
After Keeneland, I had people over to my house to sing karaoke and eat, drink, and be merry. I always hate asking people over for a party because I feel like a sixth grader waiting and hoping that someone shows up. I was convinced I'd be left alone at my own party with platters full of food and a refrigerator full of alcohol. Thankfully, that wasn't the case and I had so much fun!
Birthday's are always such a time for reflection. I'm not sure where I thought I'd be at age 31, but I feel pretty darn good with where I'm at. Here's to another great year!
