Happy, Happy Birthday to Me!

Happy birthday to me,
Happy birthday to me,
Happy birthday to Mareeeeees-uhhh
Happy birthday to me!


I'm not one of those people who shies away from birthdays. Are you kidding? A whole day to celebrate me, with cake and presents and awkward singing from everyone I love, while I just smile and think of a good wish that just absolutely has to come true.... how could I not love birthdays?

I was born on Friday the 13th, and my first birthday was on Friday the 13th, and now here we are again... Friday the 13th and I am now 28 years old. but hey, that's okay, because we are celebrating in Austin with my family and I'm quite excited.

Actually, not all of the day will be fabulous. We have the 3.5 hour drive to make with 2 kids and a medium sized dog with intestinal issues in the car... and then the actual reason we are going to Austin isn't quite to celebrate my birthday but to spend the afternoon at the Clerks and Records office because someone has waited two years to get her youngest daughter's birth certificate and she has to turn it into the immigration officers by next week or else her husband will be deported back to England pronto... but other than that, the day will be all about me and all about cake and I can't wait.

So without further ado, I think I'll link you to last years post {{click here}}, which was a photographic ode to ME and the first 26 years of my life - though now that we are at the end of my 27th year, you can just imagine that last picture with a pixie cut and a year's worth of wrinkles added to my face. I still look the same.

So happy birthday to me, and feel free to go out and treat yourself to a cupcake, or a bottle of champagne so you can celebrate right alongside me.

xoxo,
