It’s My Party

Today is my birthday. I don’t usually look forward to the celebration, since it’s so often associated in my mind with a particular number that moves inexorably up. But this year I find myself very much at peace with myself, enjoying my thirties, and discovering new things every day. I suppose this has more than a little to do with the upcoming publication of my collection–it’s been such a dream of mine, for a very long time, and to finally be able to see it come together has been very rewarding, but I also like to think that I’ve finally learned to just relax and enjoy life. I’m thinking of buying myself something special from Powell’s, spending some time with my Mom, and maybe going to Le Bouchon with Alex tonight.
