The Best Way to Celebrate a Birthday

Wondering how to surprise someone on their birthday?

Celebrate them the way they want to be celebrated of course!

The way you want your birthday celebrated is so important.

When we were growing up, my brother and I had completely opposite approaches to celebrating our birthdays. 

I love my birthday. My best friend & I have celebrated half birthdays every year since we were 6 years old. I wanted a birthday week —better yet— a whole month.

My brother is like the character Ron Swanson (from the show Parks & Rec) when it comes to his birthday. It’s a sacred day — to not receive any attention whatsoever. The only time he wants the spotlight is when he is performing his music solo or with a band. I’ll probably get a call from him for even mentioning his birthday in a public blog (sorry bro!!! ily!).

Share a favorite memory between the two of you, or celebrate one of their best character traits! Remember – even a simple “I’m thinking of you today,” can go a long way.
