I would like to wish a very happy birthday to Olivia, who shares my birthday and who turned TWO YEARS OLD today. Here she is in her birthday dress.
My party was absolutely amazing. Thanks to everyone who came, and thank you all for all the lovely gifts. Today was, truly and honestly, one of the happiest days of my entire life. A friend who watched me open my pile of gifts said that he did not think he had ever seen anyone so happy.
The presents were incredible, but my favorite part of my party was the moment I spent listening to the happy chatter of all my friends getting to know one another. I made something new today — a tribe of people who know and like one another.
Laura made me promise to get everyone together again. It was that kind of party.
More on it later. For now — bed!
