Congratulations on making another trip around the sun!
Whether this is a milestone age or just a new year, your birthday is a time to celebrate. So call up your best friends, make a playlist filled with feel-good songs, and break out the bubbly, because today is all about you. And—between bites of birthday cake, of course—make sure that you snap a few photos. You are getting older, after all, and you'll be grateful down the road that you caught some moments from your younger years on camera.
Because it's 2020, the best place to save memories is on social media—which means you'll need a cute birthday Instagram caption to go along with that picture of you and your balloons. Depending on your mood (and age), you might want a funny caption or perhaps a sweet quote. Luckily, we covered all the bases with this list of the best birthday captions for Instagram. Consider it our gift to you!
