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! :)

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!

Warm wishes from Los Angeles! xo

Allison Bullock said...

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? :)

Tonia said...

Have a wonderful birthday! May cakey goodnesses fall onto your plate and parcels of greatness into your lap!

RedHead said...

Happy Birthday!!!!!

Erin said...

I wish you a magical birthday filled with happiness. I can't wait to read about the Wendy's story! I hope this year is the best one yet!

Warm wishes,
Erin

Melissa Blake said...

Allison, that is a great way of looking at it! It will be nice to be on the younger side of a decade next year!

Melissa Blake said...

Oh, erin, will definitely post the Wendy's story soon! I'll make sure to post pics of the awesome chair too.

And THANK YOU for all these lovely commnets. I've had a difficult birthday this year ... maybe missing my dad ... and these comments brought a huge smile to my face! Love you all!!

I refuse to think about the impending 30.

I will stay 26 forever (not that I'm 26, but it feels like a nice adult but still young age)
