25 big ones.

Today is my birthday and I am going to eat cake, sit in the sun, enjoy some treats, and party like it's 1984.

I am skipping out on daily rituals today, because it's my birthday and I can.
I am skipping out on cooking and instead being treated to a dinner out, because it's my birthday and my husband freakin' rocks (low-down on our Italian eats coming later).
Tomorrow, I am attending a concert of a band I have wanted to see since I was sixteen. They are playing a show because it's the day after my birthday and they should.

It's true. Now I am closer to 30 than I am to 20. In math, 5 always rounds up to 10. *soft wimper*

But that's OK because I have green eyes and Coldplay is going to sing about them tomorrow. Yes!

"...That green eyes, yeah the spotlight, shines upon you.
And how could, anybody, deny you.

I came here with a load,
And it feels so much lighter, now I've met you.
And honey you should know, that I could never go on without you.

Green eyes

Honey you are the sea
Upon which I float.
And I came here to talk,
I think you should know.

That green eyes, you're the one that I wanted to find
And anyone who, tried to deny you must be out of their mind."

Green Eyes

There are many things I am enjoying today and I am certainly blessed by it all.
Thank you for the life-giving emails, phone calls, and messages I have received already today. You are some dear hearts.

AHHHHHH! Pertinent info that did NOT get covered yesterday - going to see Coldplay. WOW. Time to lay on the floor, close your eyes, and die from the awesomeness. I hope you have a ridiculously awesome time...

Happy birthday my young friend. I can say that, because I am closer to 50 than you are to 30!

I continue to be impressed by your heart and your spirit. We will be in Edmonton the last week of July. Perhaps we could visit a noodle house together, you and your man with me and mine?

I'm glad you were spoiled...I hope it continues!
Weeee!! Have fun seeing Coldplay!! I've been considering seeing them this summer TOO! They're coming relatively close to us...so...I think I'll need to do that. Yes. Happiest of Birthdays to you, dear friend. I hope it was great!
