I Prefer "456 Months Old"

Last year, at this time, I wrote this.


This year all I'm saying is that I continue to love my thirties. Oh, and this:

Dear Kelly,

You're doing alright. You're not screwing it up. You love your family and your friends and your job. You are becoming the woman that you wanted to be. Keep up the good work.

Happy Happy Birthday you sexy b*tch you!!!!!!

Took a picture of your birthday chocolate last night but then I think my friend stole him for herself. Sorry. Can't trust these women around a brotha. Sigh...

;) Have a great day and many many more wonderful years of celebrating your 30s.

April 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJustine

snap it off, lady.

i don't know what that means, but it sounds like a cool slang-y way to say, "enjoy this lovely birthday!" (doesn't it? i like to make up slang and pretend i'm just ahead of the curve.)

April 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLara

Happy Birthday Sexy!! now can I please borrow that shirt ? I just turned 30.. and I wanna rock the sexy too!

April 4, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermelanie

That is what it is all about. Loving. Love your life, your fam & friends, and your work. Express your gratitude through serving others. What more can you really ask for? The beautiful thing about getting older is that we figure out how to do those things better and better.

Happy Birthday and I wish you the best.

April 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBen
