To celebrate, my mom threw my sister and me a mini-party. We ate delicious homemade vanilla ice cream with toppings like strawberries and mint.
I wore my shirt that I bought at the Delheim Winery in Stellenbosch, South Africa. It was so nice to be able to spend the day with my family. Last year, Erin and I were apart on our birthday.
As I grow older, I am encouraged by these lines of my favorite poet:
No spring, nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face;
Young beauties force our love, and that's a rape;
This doth but counsel, yet you cannot scape.
~John Donne, Elegy IX
