Milestones are the biggest events happening in your life. A wedding is certainly a milestone in your life, if not the biggest one ever, but there are other milestones too.
Birthdays are always milestones in your life. When you reach a certain age in your life, they get celebrated more than your other birthdays. Examples are rite-of-passage birthdays, like a Sweet Sixteen, a Quinceañera (15th birthday) for Latino traditions, or a Debut (18th birthday) for Filipinos. Want to have a unicorn-theme cake smash photo shoot for your 40th birthday? Why not?
A person’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah is both a huge birthday AND religious milestone. Speaking of religious milestones, there are also Baptisms, First Communion, and Confirmation.
You’ve worked very hard in school and are graduating, whether it’s from high school, college, or beyond. Let’s celebrate those achievement milestones!
Celebrate your milestone with me, like these people in these images have!
