My 29th Birthday!

Well, friends, today is a big day. A very big day indeed! Today, I usher in the last year of my lovely '20s as I blow out 29 candles on my birthday cake. Though, knowing me, said cake will probably end up being a Barq's root beer and an Oreo Blizzard from Dairy Queen. Heaven! Sigh.

Is there anything better? Hope you all have a great day as I enjoy my birthday - and try not to think about the big 3-0 in exactly 365 days. Yikes! xoxo

P.S. That photo is a few years old, but my birthday love will never age! And, yes, that is also a chair from Wendy's fast-food restaurant, but that is a great story for another time and another blog post. But I will share soon, I promise! :)

  6. Happy birthday Melissa! I just celebrated my 27th birthday on the 2nd! I must admit, the later of our 20's is something to brag about as we can reflect and smile on such woes and accomplishments - I hope your year is most beautiful!

  22. Happy Birthday!

    .... I'm 29 and until recently I was staring down the big 3-0 with unconcealed dread; it was Jessica Simpson who changed my mind! In a recent interview she said, "I'm tired of being an old 20 something, I'm ready to be a young 30 something" and I thought that was wonderful! We can be a young 30 something, don't you think? :)
