Today I turn 29. I’m glad that the twenties are almost over. They’ve been up and down. They’ve been happy and sad. They’ve been easy and hard. I’m glad they happened the way they happened, and I’m glad that they are almost totally behind me. Onward and upward, friends!

End of Summer is Near

August 21, 2008

Every year, the end of summer is marked by cooler mornings, the chill you get randomly in the middle of the night, and of course….

My birthday…

Another year older

Today is my 26th birthday. I think I’ll spend the morning knitting with some coffee and then go to a Pilates class this afternoon.

Enjoy the last days of August, everyone. The month is almost at a close.
