33 years ago something truly epic transpired…

I am so humbled by the outpouring of love and support on my special day.  Thank you to everyone who messaged/commented/texted– each and every word was read and appreciated.  How grateful I am to have some truly awesome people in my corner.  So many folks are rooting for me and truly want me to succeed.  Talk about a special feeling.  This birthday girl feels like a human being of worth and value, surrounded by positive vibes.  Thanks for bringing a smile to my face and joy in my heart.


It wouldn’t be a legit birthday without a selfie by the fishels. 🐟🤳🏻

How does one spend their first day of their 33rd year?  After an early morning chat with my case manager at Alliance [we’ll call her Special K], I signed autographs downtown at everyone’s favorite legal destination on Poplar Avenue.  Case dismissed!  No special occasion is complete without tacos so I lunched at Babalu East.  Stop what you’re doing and go now.  I can’t believe I’ve missed out on such a glorious establishment five minutes from my home.  All that deliciousness left me exhausted so I indulged myself with a nap.  Four and a half hours of napping to be precise.  I’ll plan some belated birthday celebrations in the near future– perhaps a daytime family friendly event and an evening dinner for the grown folks– so stay tuned.


Allen’s special gift took my breath away. 💫🌟✨

My love gave me the most meaningful present:  my own star!  I cannot wait to view the Sloagan Star through a telescope.  This has been my dream gift for years.  I jumped for joy and squealed with happiness when I learned it was a reality.  I love you with every ounce of my being, Allen.  You’re the best.

Equally valuable are the contributions made to my birthday fundraiser on Facebook honoring Grace House, a place near and dear to my heart.  $170 have been raised thus far and there are still a few days left.  How incredible is that?!  

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
