Birthday: I'm feeling 22! ♥


Hey lovelies! I am officially 22!! As I'm writing this, I feel this urge to share with you a very special birthday memory that always makes me smile and be happy...so here it goes:
Once upon a time... Just kidding, hahaha! On June 23, 1993, my pregnant mom was craving a cheese doughnut and a hot chocolate right before mid-night! There was a Dunkin' Donuts nearby that was opened 24/7 and thankfully she was able to satisfy her cravings! Eighteen years later we moved back, very close to that Dunkin' Donuts and as we were passing by it one day, she told me about her mid-night adventure! I thought it was adorable and decided that we would go have a cheese doughnut with hot chocolate every June 23/24 at midnight! It was hands down my favorite night of the year with my family and the best birthday gift ever for me! We did this for four years straight until they closed it! :(
 So that night I got really sad because I was alone with my sister in the house at 11pm and thought our little tradition had been ruined. So to make me feel better, she put on 2 Broke Girls on Netflix until my wonderful parents came home with box full of doughnuts and hot chocolate for us! I was about to cry because even though I didn't mentioned it, they remembered and made me feel very, very special!

I had a really lovely day on my actual birthday! I went to the mall with my sister and got a couple of things for my holiday coming up and then went out to eat with my boyfriend at my favorite restaurant! We went home afterwards to watch movies and take care of our little Koko who had been a little ill due to an allergic reaction (he is okay now, thankfully!).

I am very happy and grateful that I got to spend my birthday with my family and boyfriend, because although I didn't do much, all the little things that I did do meant the world to me and were more than enough! Now I am getting mentally prepared to go to Texas with my boyfriend! I'm a bit terrified and most nights stay up for like 2 hours just thinking about how I'll be able to go on that airplane and stay there for 5 hours...but maybe after I do it, I'll finally realize that I shouldn't be scared of them and that it will all be okay on the way back! I'll keep you guys updated and will try to take lots of pictures so you guys can see them! Again, thank you for all the support and lovely comments, it really means the world to me! xx



With love,
Nikole
