On 11/11/11 I turned a whopping 35. I have mixed feelings about it. I am not one of those emotionally healthy people who are aging gracefully, I want to cry when I think that in 5 years I'll be 40. That said however, I can't think of a time in my life when I've been smarter, wiser, healthier, wealthier, more loved, more stable and leaner. So what am I to make of that?

I share my birthday with my Dad so this year my Mom rented the top floor of the Camas Library and we had a party! We had pizza from Twilight, Red Velvet Cake and Pumpkin Pie, games for the kids and pumpkin pie for dessert. I also did a slide show for my dad, I'll try to attach it, but I think it takes you to the website.

My brother Leland, My sister Kiran, Dad, Mom, my sister Holly, me, and my brother Will.

Oh my goodness, how totally fun! I love the family party, and how cool to share your BD with your dad. What a fun celebration! Happy birthday! If you're worried about aging, you could just stick with 35 for the next 15 years, because people will TOTALLY believe that you are 35 for a good while still.
