As I’ve gotten older, I think about how my celebrations have changed.
In my teens, they required leaving the house and getting away. In my 20s, they were bar focused and social. In my 30s I started thinking about having experiences, places that were unique in some way, different from places I’ve been before.
Now I’m 40 and I just want to sit down, have animated conversations and drink high end booze in the comfort of someone’s home.
