I had an amazing birthday and I have to say the odd age of 26 was something I was not excited about. But between my coworkers and doting family, I can’t help but feel blessed on this wonderful day! After a delicious beef stroganoff dinner, I tried to blow out all my candles. I nearly set off the smoke alarm. I guess it happens when your mom decides to buy the sparkling candles that regenerate after every breath. For a second, I thought I was just losing lung capacity. I mean I have been on this earth for quite some time. Maybe my lungs are not what they used to be. Anyways I’m rambling again… and just want to be sure that I thank everyone who made my birthday special. Since I’m exhausted and want to get up early tomorrow, it’s time to go to bed! Love you all – birthday A.
