here are some photos of extended birthday celebrations with family and friends, which i had effectively avoided in previous years.
there were several reasons for not celebrating. one of them was that i used to think it’s just a lame excuse for getting together and getting drunk (not only, but most notably).
BUT it’s actually a pretty good excuse, and as long as you’re with the right kind of people, “drinking” can easily be exchanged with “having lots of fun”…
i have the greatest family and friends that one could ask for. seriously, they are incredible!
(i re-realized this earlier this year, but it seems like a good moment to note it down again.)
