You Say It’s Your

Birthday! Sing it with me!

Well, actually, it was yesterday, but what the heck. Sing it anyway. Who cares if you’re at work? Take a chachachachance.

What an awesome day – you wake up in the morning and you think, “It’s my birthday!” Or, if you’re particularly fortunate, you have a 5 year old waiting for you to wake up so he can whisper in your ear, “It’s your birthday.” You can have an extra [fill in the blank - croissant, coffee, cocktail...] without looking over your shoulder for witnesses, because well, hey – it’s your birthday. You can do all your chores and still have fun, because it’s your birthday. It’s GREAT.

Have a look at the cards the kids made for me. Bet you can’t guess who did what!

That’s me in the front of the bottom car. I think it’s a vintage Jag. I think I need a stylist.

Check it out! “My love for you is Explosive” – with volcano!!

I also had four birthday serenades – all amazing, and dinner out with wonderful friends. It was actually warm last night (because our summer always starts in September) and we were able to sit outside. I’m so grateful for all our family, friends and where we live – days like this are real reminders of our good fortune.

The other good news Dad and I figured out on the phone yesterday? I’m 39 – I’ve finally caught up to him.

    Good point, Laura. It’s weird to think I’m now older than Dad.
