Birthday Expectations and Reflections. What's up 27?

It seem's like with birthdays, much like New Years eve, there can be so much pressure to have the absolute best.day.ever.

It's the best to be the 'birthday girl' but it's also like, nerve-wracking because there's so much expectation! There's so much anticipation, planning, organizing and people reaching out, it can be a lot.
