it only happens once a year.


today i turn 29 & i'm pretty ok with it.  it's a little scary going into the last year of my twenties, knowing that the next birthday will be a whole new decade.  but what's it matter... 30 is the new twenty, right?  isn't that what the kids are saying?  heck yes it is.

the 20's have been good to me.  i met the love of my life, i got married, i graduated college, i worked four good years as a full-time career woman, & i birthed the best little boy i could have ever hoped for.  i have one full year left in the 20's & i plan to make it a good one.  i'm working on a 30 by 30 list & hope to have it posted soon.

but today?  today will be spent with friends & family, bbq-ing & eating chocolate cake.  that's pretty much my standing appointment on this day each year.  and also?  i make sure that every year on my birthday everything i eat has no calories.  so there's always that.

it works for you too, so eat a slice of cake on me!

how about a happy birthday vote?

    BTW, when you get to the 30's, it isn't all that bad, I promise. At least you're closer to 30 than 40, gawd I'm old.
