It's Good to Be the Birthday Girl.

It's a book! It's a cake! I'm in love.
Thirty-two years ago today:
Prince Charles and Princess Di had been married for exactly ONE day.
The Fox and the Hound and Escape From New York were in theaters.
Jesse's Girl by Rick Springfield topped the Billboard Chart.
The Belgian Senate adopted laws against racism.

Yours truly was ONE day old!

That's right; yesterday was my birthday, and I feel so loved right now. Seriously, if you combined a pile of kittens with a kiss on the forehead and a book of fuzzy Lisa Frank stickers, that's how I feel. My parents, sisters, friends, Keith, and my coworkers made me feel very special (and Keith made sure I GORGED myself on delicious Indian food). After a lovely dinner and HOURS of wine-fueled girl talk with two of my favorite women, Keith and I made a special trip to the post office. We chucked our freshly addressed wedding invitations in the mailbox, squee! BEST DAY EVER. Thank you to everyone who made me feel special yesterday!

I don't mind getting older, and I don't want to pretend I just celebrated my 24th birthday again. I find that I'm getting happier, less self conscious, and more comfortable with who I am as I get older. I'm 32, and I have a lot to be happy about right now. I'm going to take this week off from blogging to enjoy some of those things...  Be back next week!


  1. I turned 31 this year and feel the exact way you described. Although life took different turns than expected I like where I have ended up and am more and more comfortable with myself each day. Here's to our thirties!

    Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy birthday!!! Sounds like an awesome way to celebrate it! Can you believe I've never had Indian food?!?

  3. Happy birthday!

    I vaguely remember my mom and my Aunt Steph taking me to 'The Fox and the Hound.' I would have been four.

  4. happy birthday, lady! i hope you have a heck of a week celebrating— you deserve it!

  5. I haven't read in a while... Love the new look on your blog!

    Happy Birthday :)
