Birthday Girl

Yes indeed, today is my birthday! I’m 32, but this morning as I was still in bed I was thinking that really, I don’t feel any older than when I was 22 (and I’m sure I still act just as immature sometimes!). So far I can’t complain about my 30s. In many ways they’re a huge improvement over my 20s; I’m a lot more confident and a lot less afraid to speak my mind — two characteristics that I could have used back then. At any rate!

So far I’ve had a great morning. Drew gave me a beautiful Tahitian pearl necklace with matching earrings. (I love black pearls – a couple years ago he gave me a strand and this is a pendant which I can wear a lot more often because it’s not quite as formal.) The boys gave me a Spider-Man card (too cute!), and I have already been overwhelmed with birthday wishes on MySpace, Facebook, and via e-mail. Thank you so much!

We’ll be celebrating on Sunday due to crazy work schedules, so my day today will hopefully just be calm and relaxing. I’m planning on baking some pumpkin cookies with chocolate chips, and Drew has promised to bring me home a slice of chocolate cake from my favorite deli. (I hope they have the Boston cream pie today! Isn’t it so confusing that Boston cream pie is really a cake? Go figure.) TGIF, peeps!
