Memories from Punta Cana pt. 4 + Birthday Reflections

Shot by Patrick Baluyut

Today I turned 26! I'm off from work today so I thought I'd share the last set 
of photos from my trip to Punta Cana and a few words on turning a year older.

When I was much younger, I used to wonder why my parents wouldn't
feel the need to do anything to celebrate their birthdays. We'd just do something
simple as a family, and that was it. Today I turned 26. Last summer, when I turned 25,
and my two birthdays before that, I had house parties with both friends and family.

For some reason, I don't feel like doing that this year. I mean, if I had a choice, I'd have
a small dinner at a restaurant or maybe a small BBQ at my house on a weekend with
just really close friends and family. I'm not craving a party.

But of course, my sweet boyfriend Patrick has booked us a weekend--a mini stay staycation
in the city. We're probably going to find a German bar to watch the World Cup Finals on Sunday.
