Happy Birthday to Moi!!!


First, MERCI for all your wonderful comments on my last post. You are all so right! Almost every woman I meet says life gets better as you get older, and after all, aren't 30's the new 20's now (not that I'm 30 yet, but I have something to look forward to!)? Last night as I laid in bed, I began to pray, and eventually I found myself repeating one phrase over and over: "I'm scared, I'm scared, I'm scared..." But you know what, that's okay. Being scared at this point in my life is 100% totally and completely normal. And just saying it out loud, to God, on the eve of my 27th birthday made me feel a million times better.

AND despite everything, I woke up this morning giddy (much like I did when I was turning 5, 6, 15...). My Mom woke me up with a 9:30 AM birthday call, and unlike most days, I couldn't fall back asleep. Instead I checked my iPhone (thanks, Marmie!) and began to read all my birthday messages. So much love! So much excitement!! I decided to hop out of bed and get myself a birthday bagel and let the day's festivities begin.

Funnily enough, my festivities begin with waiting for lots of people to make their way to my humble flat: Time Warner guy (getting DVR - yay! It's a steal when you live with 3 other people!), UPS guy (got a package notification yesterday... exciting!), and FedEx guy (Mom sent me my printer and DVD player). Then eventually, it's off to Christopher Stanley to get a blow-out and then back here to don some faux lashes (if I can manage to get them on... so hard) and my sparkly ensemble and head to dinner! Merci for ALL your wonderful birthday wishes!! I'll share pictures asap!

Hahaha! Hyvaa syntymapaivaa! To borrow Vanessa's idea, that's happy birthday to you in Finnish.
Enjoy your birthday dinner, girl! With ten people? How do you already know that many people in NYC? I would barely have 6 people invited for my party....
