Especially to my family who made it a memorable one...

I’ve been wanting to blog about my birthday, but somehow words don’t fit the emotions I experienced. The love I received in terms of the wishes, the gifts , the smiles and the hugs is unexplainable.

The love I felt this 20th birthday was something I never expected. I’ve never been the type who plans her bday and party etc months ahead (my own sister does that lol.. ), somehow I never felt like planning. This time , I had planned, but the people on my list kept changing, and finally chose few of those who’ve been by my side, who’ve been a friend, and most importantly people I like :)

Irrespective of my friends changing, friends from my past somehow have a soft corner in my heart, and I decided to break the barriers and let me indulge in their company again.. like old times.. and tho playing a host gave me very little time with everyone, I was glad to see everyone enjoying and bonding! Gave me smiles too. Unfortunately the pics I took were last min and blurry… I forgot about camera till everyone got ready to leave!!

I cant describe the best gift cause a lot of them have very special and warm sentiments attached…

But one of them really got me crying was from my sis, Ishu and my family too.. tho I think primarily it was my lil sweetie’s idea.. they got me calendar with my childhood photos, when I was a baby and as I grew older…with each member of my family… was really sweet. Something I didn’t expect!! *sniff*

I got a real special perfume, from a really special someone *hugs* … cause that someone knew how I used to go to the mall and spray testers and sigh and rave and rant about Elizabeth Arden and when a ‘dream’ like that comes true, u dunno what to say. Esp when u with that person, and ur being asked to take it at the perfume store. I was speechless. Not used to dreams like that coming true… end up buying for someone else always.. pampering myself is tough!

Surprisingly three of my friends took up a similar idea as my sis, and gave me collage of photos with memorable moments. *sweet*

One of my friends, flew down from another city, just for my birthday! *------------* cant describe the emotions--- shock,awe,gratitude etc..etc! I mean she came down just for me :) its something I’ll never forget, for the rest of my life !

I got books,shoes,clothes, and perfumes too… everything was sweet and anything I got made me happy cause I didn’t expect like proper gifts, knowing how broke we all get esp when it comes to buying gifts ;p

Well I had the birthday blues after that, maybe it was various things, but mostly I think I didn’t have enough of the special day :( lol… in a way its right to have one day when ur treated like a queen and in a way its not! But anything in excess would cause monotony and boredom.. so I shall let it be.. and smile when I think of my 20th bday :)

By the way,my 18th bday sucked-shattered the hype of the ‘grand’18 bday, and 19th wasn anything extraordinary…

This bday made me re-discover the joy in birthdays and gave me a lot moments to savor and reminisce… and my family really played a huge role in organizing and making it a successful and memorable day :)

As I grow older , I realise the value of home, family, relationships –good,bad,ugly, and that thing called….love!
