Older and (Just a Bit) Wiser

Today is my birthday.  And while I am shocked that is not yet a national holiday, I must say that it honestly just feels like another normal Wednesday…except that I took that day off for a shopping and spa day (which feels pretty freakin’ awesome)!

I love other people’s birthdays, and am the first to make a huge fuss over them, but when it comes to celebrating the anniversary of my own birth (a wonderful day indeed), I find I prefer to keep it a bit low-key.

Whatever you chose, I will accept the compliment gracefully, just as Meryl would (unless you say over my actual age, then I will slap you like A Real Housewifejust as Meryl would).

So cheers to another year older, perhaps a teeny bit wiser, certainly not calmer (I did just threaten to slap people…I’ll check back in post-spa), but definitely happier. See you on the other side!
