25, twenty five, quarter of a century, 5 years from 30

I am officially 25 years old. Yep, I had a birthday on Thursday. It was actually a really good day too. I have a fabulous family and fantastic friends who made it a great day. Birthday cards, birthday presents, birthday banners, birthday phone calls, birthday flowers, birthday balloons, and birthday cake = one happy old Anna. Thanks everyone!
I am not sure why, but I am feeling exceptionally old. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that when you are 25 they can no longer use one box of birthday candles. Birthday candles come in boxes of 24.
Let me not dwell on an extra box of candles. I can now rent a car with out paying an extra fee for being under the age requirement. Yahoo. (That was sarcastic. I never rent cars.)
I am including some pictures from the birthday cake at dinner. My cousin took them with the camera phone, so that explains the low quality. (I really need to start carrying my camera with me)

It looks like my chest is on fire... That's not suppose to happen till menopause right? 25 candles causes quite the blaze!

I couldn't blow out the candles on the first try... I started to laugh at myself, that is what put out the candles.

Happy Birthday to me!
