I’ve Got This

Today I am thirty-two. I’m not going to lie about my age because

I

Love

My

Thirties

LOVE!! Oh my gosh, what a relief to be leaving my twenties behind. I’m grateful for them, and they were full of ups and downs and whatever, but what thirty means? It means I’m no longer in the same decade as 20, 23, 26, 29… And that girl didn’t have my lean pink toddler machine or shining golden trouble maker! No wonder she thought she knew everything… my thirty year old self accepts that I actually know NOTHING. And I have to say, that knowledge is everything.

Plus, I have never felt better, or looked better! Don’t believe me? Just look at this picture --->

Don’t be jealous, I had a very biased artist make me that portrait. Plus, I think I’ve come a long way since the first time he drew me a couple years ago! --->

I don’t know what it means that the only one smiling is “Alice.” I’m just glad I’m now a shiny lady under a rainbow instead an angry humpty dumpty head.

And even though it’s my birthday, I have a present for you! Now that I am full of life experience, I feel qualified to tell you all that I have figured out the meaning of life.

And I made a video about it.

I hope you all have a good my birthday, too!

first, let me commend russell for that spectacular beard he gave you. that's your hair? interesting how it wraps your lower head. and for family portrait #2, i do think it should be your christmas card of the cheery family. he does have my art dna, walking on the dark side. particularly, i enjoy the expressions of all of your eyeballs...
LOVE the video! keep her giggling, don't give her any crayons. love it all, as you know, and particularly my OWN adored baby girl who is 32 today. what a wonderful and memorable 32 years we've had together, aren't i so lucky! love you so much and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
