Happy Birthday to Me!

So - I had a birthday on Monday.

I feel like I'm starting to not feel okay about getting older. Gray hairs are cropped up, wrinkles, etc. I'm thinking this might not be fun. Alas, I bought this:


We'll see how it works.

For the last couple years, I've not been in LA to celebrate my birthday, usually celebrating in Phoenix. I'm headed out of town again this weekend (with this lovely lady) to Austin, so I figured that was celebration enough. I started getting sick last week and did nothing over the weekend but rest in bed.

Alas, I figured I had to do something on Monday, and after some coaxing from friends, a small group of us gathered at Baco Mercat on Monday night. A long wait without reservations (parties over 6 must call a week in advance), but we all finally sat and ate and had a delicious time.







A couple other friends banded together to bring me a homemade version of Candy Bar Pie from Milk Bar, and wowza, is it amazing!  Thank you, Marcello and Heather!

All in all it was a pretty good birthday, and I feel good about the year ahead.  My motto this year shall be - just say yes! To do things I haven't done, to be open to whatever comes my way. And the first thing I'm saying yes to - a Ragnar Relay. Eeeek!
