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.
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.
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,
