Thirty one years ago…on this very day…something miraculous happened…

I was born!!


My best friend and Soul Sister, Maris, made this birthday collage for me.

What a wonderful birthday it was.  Joey woke me with an early morning call and then I discovered the dozens of comments on Facebook acknowledging my special day.  I was grinning from ear to ear before I even got out of bed.  Because everyone else slept late I went downstairs, drank an ungodly amount of coffee, cranked the rap music, and danced around the kitchen shaking my tailfeather.  Then I took a bubble bath and read Cosmo.  It was glorious.


My son’s adorable homemade card.

The only festivities on our agenda were a family dinner at Macaroni Grill and a trip to Barnes & Noble.  I stuffed my face and got five magazines.  Win.  I so appreciate all of the calls, texts, messages, and comments I received from my friends.  It is not lost on me how lucky I am to have such incredible people in my life– and how lucky I am to be moving into my third decade.  How grateful I am.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,



About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
