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!
Today is the 68th birthday of the first lady of country music; Miss Dolly Parton! Dolly has had quite and career and I’ve followed it for as long as I can remember. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to visit the motherland; Dollywood (don’t laugh).
… and who can forget Polly Darton singing on Sesame Street? Even as a kid I loved this!
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.
