Ah, another year older, another year wiser. Probably not, but I shall try. The past year has been breathtakingly amazing to me, so I can't wait to see what 31 holds. Birthdays aren't nearly as exciting as they used to be, but they are a great way to see how far I've come in the intervening year. I celebrated with breakfast in bed and presents:
A much-needed new briefcase.
Artizone, which they not only moved up earlier in the day because it was my birthday, but also stocked with additional goodies because why not.
Goose Island's limited release of Big Train (it is amazing. Get it - if you can):
It was quieter birthday that made me chuckle in contrast to my 21st birthday bash a decade ago. This was also my first birthday in years I haven't been traveling for work, so it was wonderful just to be home with the ones I love. Life changes so fast, and I'm lucky in that I know the next year will only be better than the last. Here's to the early 30s!
