Yesterday was my 31st birthday. It was a little bittersweet for a few reasons, but it was also wonderful. I had a few work buddies call me at home to wish me a happy birthday. I spoke to my BM who lives in NYC and to my brother and parents. I received a hand made card from my niece in which she drew all 31 candles on the cake! I had a great dinner with friends and Fi was extra caring and sweet. I received two gifts that just blew me away in their thoughtfulness and understanding of me. Nobody loves a birthday more than me and of course part of it is the attention I receive, but I think more and more it is the love I feel from friends and family that truly makes birthdays awesome!
