I love birthdays. Everyone has one and they’re fun to celebrate.
I can remember almost all of my birthdays. Mom always made sure they were special, even though I never got a pony.
The zero birthdays always get celebrated extra special. Sweet niece Molly turned 10 this year. I wish I felt as grown up now as I did at 10.
I have friends that are parents of 20 year-olds, and hang out with a few kids who recently turned 30. Another friend turned 40 last week.
My crowd is turning 50. Seriously. I hear 50 is the new 30. I sure hope so.
The really cool part is that my 50-ish friends seem really, really happy. And they look darn good too!
Which means that I have ten months to get it together.
Kristi celebrated her birthday yesterday. She’s one of my pulled-together, hip, beautiful friends and I was thrilled to celebrate with her. I am continually amazed by her generosity, humor, parenting skills and and all-around kick-ass self.
