Twenty Two

Isn't this a great birthday gift? THIS!



I also got an award from Anna! (I will do that later x)


It is also Miss B's birthday today, and E's
And it's also Kenna's birthday :)

I am TWENTY TWO today
22
I don't know if I ever mentioned that, but when I was around 9...I would pray that I don't live to be 12, in fear of losing my grandparents. I lost my grand father at 15. And I lived to be 22.

I am very optimistic though, because I won't have a double-digit age in another 11 years and I will make a point of enjoying this year.

Dear Twenty-One,

Thank you for being a milestone, I have my own car, because of you. And I got my first job, with you by my side. I hope you enjoyed my company as much as I enjoyed yours. We had our own problems, but then again, that's how it always is! We let go, and move on. Overall, you were a very good year. Thank you for that!

Now we go our separate ways to never meet again.

Love,
Sara

PS I was born on a Wednesday!

PPS Thank you for your musical suggestions, everyone!

Edit: Oh look what Jen has for me! I love you, cousin! (PEOPLE, wait for the special Jen post, soon!) and the boy :)

Happy birthday lovely lady! Oh to be 22 again. I buried my twenties last year. It was rough. Ah ha. Live it up sister!

Miss B said...

Happy, happy birthday (again) sweetheart!

I had a lovely day -- cake for breakfast (and, ummm, maybe more cake after lunch -- I'm not admitting anything), and some adorable gifts, and some lovely emails and phone calls, and a visit from a dear friend (the dear man who left the beautiful anonymous comment on my last post, and was the person I was having the glue spot conversation with this last weekend to begin with) and some more surprise gifts, and flowers, and I am soon being taken out to dinner. So it was -- even though I was at work all day -- a beautiful day. I'm glad I made you smile; you make me smile, too, sunshine.

Email coming tonight.

With big love...
