You know how most people these days say that they don`t like celebrating their birthdays? Well, i have always been a “birthday person ”. Each year i am more excited for my birthday than the last. I like to buy a special dress for my special day and be pampered and treated like a princess throughout. This year, i felt that my 24th birthday would be even more special than the previous birthday since i had a boyfriend to share it with. So i was looking forward to a grand celebration with him, my friends and family and i couldn`t wait for 15th September to arrive. Like every year, my closer friends and family would dine at a fancy restaurant, followed by a night of partying. Instead of giving any hints, i made it amply clear that my expectations of a grand birthday surprise were sky high and that i better be treated like an absolute princess.
Finally, on the big day , the clock struck 12 and the doorbell of my house rang! All my closest friends stormed in with party props, caps and my favourite finger lickin delicious red velvet cake from my favourite bakery. Everyone was there, but no sign of my friend Kevin. Distracted by the noise and all the singing, hugs, kisses and cake cutting, i tried not to feel too bad about Kevin not showing up. We clicked lots of picture, after which i answered numerous birthday wish phone calls till almost 2 am. And guess what ? there wasn`t a single text, let alone a phone call from Mr. Kevin. All my friends had left by then and i thought to myself, this guy better have a good reason or i swear to god, he is so DEAD!
I Was woken up next morning by my two best friends, kia and Trisha, asking me to get ready quickly. I was absolutely confused with no idea of what was going on. They told me that Kevin had planned a road trip . It took me a few seconds to fathom what was going on. Super excited, i jumped out of bed. After all, road trips were my favourite thing. And that too on my special day! It was literally the best surprise ever! After brushing my teeth and slipping into my tracks, i hugged my parents after they wished me and headed out with the girls.
Kevin was sitting in his car, which had my favourite polka-dot balloons tied to the side view mirror. I slipped in and Kevin gave me a sweet birthday kiss. I was getting butterflies in my tummy. Two of my friends seated to the back along with Kevin and I, set off to the roadtrip. My face was still pink with excitement, and i felt so much love for Kevin. HE had spent the whole of last week being all aloof from me as he was busy planning the perfect surprise. This wasn`t all. Throughout our journey, he played my all favourite playlist. We went on a road trip and reach a location where he had special plan for me , he had a suite booked for my friends and a special room for just two of us !
As soon as i entered our room to freshen up, there lay a sexy LBD (the one i had been eyeing for so long) with a note saying “HAPPY Birthday Princess, it`s time to dress up”. Happy tears started flowing down my eyes. Kevin had not only arranged for all this, but had also made the effort of picking out the perfect dress for the occasion. I mean, what a thoughtful and loving boyfriend i had. How many boys would actually go through the trouble of shopping for their girl unaccompanied ? Next, we headed out of our rooms and spent the whole day by the poolside, drinking, playing games and exploring the beautiful resort. We ended the night with some dancing, cake cutting and not to forget, some lovely photo sessions in my new LBD.
While i ended up spending my birthday in a very different way from the typical annual celebrations, this was definitely a great surprise! This is how my boyfriend made my 24th birthday the most memorable one so far. I think he is totally a keeper and i hope to celebrate many more upcoming birthdays with him in a more special way.
