i’m here!

June 29, 2010

But barely.  As I’ve said before I need blog freshness, but I just don’t want to let this blog go.  I’ve started another blog – *gasp* – but I’m not ready to share just yet.  In fact, when I do share, it will only be with those who actively follow this blog, so comment if you want to journey to the next episode. 🙂

But until I’m ready to shift into a new phase more completely, I will be sure to update here from time to time.  This blog still has the complete story, so to speak, so I won’t let go of it soon.


My birthday was amazing!  The Friday night even turned out to be a good mixed crowd.  BF came out to support and I just felt like I had it all.  It feels good to be so comfortable with where you are in life.

Saturday, BF took me to dinner at an exclusive restaurant.  To recount the highlights – I had a special dinner with BF overlooking the City; there was cherries jubilee at our table; the food was amazing; the band played Happy Birthday and Pretty Woman for me; and the maitre d’ pulled me aside to inform me that BF’s family loved me, especially his mother, and to ask when was the wedding date, lol.

It has been a perfect birthday and week.  I’m extremely happy and I hope it never ends.


birthday celebrations

June 23, 2010

I have so much to catch up on.  I am busy busy busy celebrating my 36th(!) birthday!  I just had to take a minute to praise BF.  We were talking on the phone as we both drove home from work and the conversation turned to my birthday happy hour on Friday. 

The invitation list is shaping up to be mostly, if not all women…all my close girlfriends.  Well, BF never wants to be at an all girl’s thing, so I mentioned to him that he didn’t have to come…and HE said, no, I’m coming by anyway to support you.  He said, if it’s an all girl thing, he’ll stay for a minute and then go get into something else.


I am so used to being on my own and not asking anyone for anything.  And to have someone who just has your back is such an amazing feeling.
