The Ultimate Guide to Celebrating your Birthday (and Sevitember)!

I’m not an expert in birthdays, but coming up on my 29th I’ve gained a lot of knowledge on the subject. Here’s the thing, birthdays are meant to be celebrated! Whether it be a half birthday, an entire month, the week, or just the day – your birthday is what you make of it.

I’m more of a month kind of girl. You get the idea – September to Sevitember, it just has a nice ring to it. Seeing as I’ve become so well versed in celebrating birthdays – I wanted to share a little advice on how to make the best of your birthday.

1 | Celebrate your birthday in your own way. DO WHAT YOU WANT! I’m taking off my actual birthday, September 25 and spending the day with David. No work, lots of play! After plans and plans, I finally opted for a low key birthday brunch with my favorite people. I’m counting down the days until I’m gathered and noshing at my favorite brunch spot. If you are more of a low key type of person, make it your year to sit back and just enjoy the fact that you’ve made it another year.

2 | Try out new things and indulge in your favorites! One of my goals for this month was to get out and about in Dallas. I wanted to try new things, go to new places, and live life in the moment. From Bolsa for a fun Dallas foodie event to a Silent Disco with DJ Spinderella, I’m branching out and trying things that I’ve never thought to experience. For the classics, I’ve got my favorites with The Vintage House and Joy Macarons.

3 | Surround yourself with great people! I’ve got a tribe of people who seriously make every day easier as I go into my second birthday without my dad. They’ve been so supportive in making sure that I have plans and are there for me each step of the way. This year has been a vast difference from last year (shout out to counseling) and the tears have been less frequent than last year.

You see, I have the best people in my life.Which is exactly why I’m continuing the fun of Sevitember with a giveaway of epic proportions with a few of my favorite people. When I mentioned that I wanted to plan a giveaway for one lucky reader for Sevitember, nobody hesitated wanting to be apart of it. That’s when you know you’ve got a tribe of people who not only believe in you, but want to be apart of your celebrations.

You’re probably wondering how epic this giveaway really is, I suggest you sit down for all the goodies up for grabs:

Did you read all of that?!? LIKE REALLY! I’ve been thinking of ways that I could enter it myself, because WOW! Don’t waste any time, scroll below and enter now. The giveaway will be running until Monday, September 27 and I will be announcing the winner on the last day of Sevitember Wednesday, September 30.

    First of all, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! I hope Sevitember is all you want it to be!!

    My custom canvas would simply say don’t be afraid to succeed. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed that I just let stuff go, but that would be a good reminder to keep it going. 😀

    I love this giveaway, and happy birthday month! I’m obsessed with Alli K’s work (just bought a custom globe!) and I was so sad I didn’t win a With Love From Rigby headband at the last DBC event!

    Ok, custom canvas… I would love one that says “Saboe family, est. 2016” to hang in my first home as a newlywed.

    If I won, my custom design would say “goodnight, sweet girl” It’s what I say to Sophia every night when I put her to bed. Or I’d just get her name or her nickname “SophieRobs” to frame and put in her room.

    Happy Belated Birthday, Sevi! I feel the same way about birthdays and hope you’re enjoying the rest of Sevitember. I had a rough birthday one year and when I didn’t get to celebrate on my actual birthdayI took it hard and then my sister told me that my birthday is not over…in fact, she said that I should enjoy the whole month.
    Great post – a year of celebration sounds wonderful so hear, hear to the celebration of a new year.
