Thank You for the Birthday Wishes 2018


Thank you EVERYONE for all of your comments, messages, texts and phone calls. You made me feel very special on my 30-something-ith birthday!

An extra special thank you to Stacy for planning a surprise party, and my family and friends who could attend!

I am lucky to have each and every one of you in my life. I am so blessed and appreciate everyone being part of my special day.

Happy Birthday Dolly Parton!

January 19 is one of my favourite days of the year, because it’s the birthday of Miss Dolly Parton! Dolly was born in Tennessee on January 19, 1946. Not only is she the Queen of country music and beyond, but she is also a very enterprising woman, spanning a variety of industries and charitable causes.

Thank You for the Birthday Wishes 2015


I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for the greetings and well wishes on my birthday yesterday. The number of messages on Facebook and Twitter was overwhelming and you all really made my day – I cannot thank you enough!

I turned 29 this year – again – this makes the fourth consecutive year … you can do the math if you absolutely must.

This past year has been full of life changes – good and bad – and like many big life changes, things are not always easy. I’ve been going through a hard time lately (when it rains it pours!) and it felt amazing to hear from everyone over the last few days.

Thank you for taking a moment to say hello and send your best wishes. It means a lot!

Turning the Big 3-0

Last Saturday (July 20, 2013) I crossed the line from hopeful 20-something to depressed 30 year old.

I have now been the BIG 3-0 for exactly 1 week and I do have to admit that I don’t really feel any different. I don’t know what I was expecting though; maybe I thought I had some kind of expiration date or countdown timer. Did I think I was going to explode at midnight or something? I’m happy to report that I’m still alive.

I went to sushi with friends followed by drinks (lots of them) at our house. Jess made strawberry jello shots in actual strawberries. Deliciously intoxicating! I’m not much of a drinker, honestly, but I consumed enough rum & coke that night to successfully sail into my 30’s without even realizing it. Come to think of it, I don’t recall much about the rest of that night – haha! If you have to turn a scary age, I highly recommend being in a daze for it.

Having a Rolo ice cream cake from DQ certainly helps too! Mmmmmm.

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes on Facebook, Twitter and in person. I’m lucky to have so many great people in my life.
