Non-Tangible Birthday Gifts

Saturday is my birthday. Other than being excited to see friends for the Frida Tweetup – whoop-de-doo. Make no mistake about it, I do love my birthday. Born on February 5th, I’ve said since about 1985 – “Feb 5 is a great day to come alive.” It’s situated far enough past Christmas that budgets have […]

Skymall Birthday Wishlist

I love to shop, but not in the traditional “Let’s go to the mall and have a girly shopping spree heyday” kind of shopping. As soon as I was old enough to help my mom clip coupons, I gained mad discount bargain shopping skills. I am true to my brand loyalties, despite buying most of […]

The Tayviator is Thirty

This is my Tayviator. That’s Taylor + Aviator, if you didn’t already figure it out. He turned 30 today, and I want to tell you some of the reasons I love him. He’s a good big brother…he’s the oldest of seven and he makes sure that all of his siblings feel important. He’s good with […]

Dear Rosie, Excitement and boredom. Joy and sadness. Change and adaptation. Hugs and kisses. Creativity and silliness. Independence and bravery. Fun and Culture. Travel and Home. Love and empathy. Childlike, yet mature. Seven moves, four states, lots of great food and countless people who love you. I’m so blessed that you’re mine. Please don’t grow […]

Birthday Bash

Last night was my big (little) birthday bash. It was an evening of friends new and old: high school friend, old roommates and pilot buddies. Taylor made his fabulous fajitas, and we celebrated with chocolate fudge fantasy cake. I was serenaded by Clint on his new single in production (and I say that a loosely […]

Birthday Blogging

Today was my 29th birthday. It started out with 3 hours of sleep. A conversation with Janet. 45 minutes more sleep. A shower. Waking up Rosie. Dropping her off at school. A really busy workday. Taking Rosie to the Dermatologist. Going out for a birthday dinner with Rosie. Waiting for Taylor to come home….only minutes […]

My birthday is in 5 days *hint hint*

If I could have ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING for my birthday this year, it would be a ticket to Coachella Music Festival. Oh, how I had $300 of disposable income! Look at the line up! My lifelong dream (since I really started caring about music as a child) has been to see Paul McCartney live. And he’s […]

Happy Birthday to ME!

Today has been a lovely day. If it were only for my dad’s progress, I would have been a happy 28 year old woman. But I got a whole day with Taylor, and we had a blast! I picked up up from the airport right after Rosie left for school, had a lot of alone […]
