28

{A Respectable Age to Be}

Today is my birthday. 27 was the best year yet, albeit one with a steep learning curve (wifehood, self-employment, bangs). But 28 sounds like a very respectable age to be, so I might as well try it. 28 sounds like graduate school, seeing more of the world, and generally becoming a more productive member of society. Which sounds pretty good to me. So hello, 28; I hope it's a good year.


That whirling dirvish dancing across the mesa under a full moon? That's my beautiful sister who is in full cahoots with P. regarding birthday surprises, or so I suspect. Together they are veritable birthday ninjas, so I can't wait for this weekend to unfold. Will report back on Monday.

Hope you have a marvelous spring weekend.

  13. MANY HAPPY RETURNS OF THE DAY, Lily! I wish you a big red balloon. A BIG ONE. And lots of desert twirling and a year of wondrous adventures. Big Wishes to you. Big and Glorious Wishes and Big and Glorious Cheers.

    (As for 28, I can verify that it is a very respectable age to be. Very respectable indeed.)

  17. But, you're a baby! (Sez she who is only 1 year older.)

    And 28 was a VERY good year. I wish you the bestest year possible.

    And HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!! I hope that this weekend was nothing short of SPECTACULAR!

    (And now I have reason to add to the (loooooong overdue) package that will be winging it's way to you as soon as the Post Office and I can find some common ground.)

    Love you lots, my favourite desert Lily. ♥

  19. I am 28 too and am pretty pleased about it. Funny, I thought you were older than me from what you write. Your skill as a painter, your insights, (and let's not forget the recipes!) are things I think I hoped to have in my future. Nice to know it is obtainable at this age-gives me some much needed motivation!

    Sounds like the birthday celebrations were wonderful!
