Some people lament turning another year older; some people lie about their age; some people don't like celebrating birthdays at all. I've never understood that. Maybe one day I'll reach an age where I do. In the meantime, I am happy to be alive, and healthy, and loved. In 29 years so many things have happened, and I would not take a single one of them back.
p.s. my friend Lauren made me the best cake EVER. seriously. ever.
