When you turn 29…


You don’t have to make your bed in the morning.

You might get lots of presents.

You might have “sweet of choice,” which is when your loving friend makes anything in the world you want for dessert. And if you choose a chocolate cake from a box with lots of canned icing, she’ll make it.

You might get to get all dressed up for a schmancy dinner with your honey.

It might be a very good day, and the start of a very good year.

Thanks, everyone, for all your birthday wishes and gifts. I’ll post photos of them soon!
