Well, first and foremost, let me say a hearty THANK YOU to everyone that made me have one of the happiest birthdays ever. I heard from so many of you - cards, emails, texts, and yes, Facebook:)
I loved seeing so many people over the weekend too - a reminder that although I cannot see or even talk to everyone as much as I would like, we can still connect when it matters.
Next, here are some things you might like to know.
1 - I attended a wedding at Nazareth Hall recently, and in the ladies' room (where all good conversions occur), I met a lady who was older than me (not old, just older than me). She compliments me on my dress - who doesn't love that? Next she continues, "Now, I know that blue is out this year, but I still like it! I mean, who cares if your dress is out, right?!" Apparently, I had no idea that the color blue was out this year. Damn you, Stella & Dot - you said cobalt was IN.
2- My new neighbor never wears a shirt and waters his lawn for hours while perched in a lawn chair. Hours. I saw him on Friday night and it came up that it was my birthday. Now, he's older than I am as well. I am guessing somewhere in his 60s because of the age of his kids but I cannot say for sure. He says to me, "Huh, birthday? How old are you? 40? 45?" I smiled. "Somewhere in that range*." Never OVERguess a woman's age. Come on, Shirtless Dave. Go low on the age guess.
*Please note that I just turned 35.
