the sound of a thousand spanks

Yes, the rumors are true. I turn 30 today.

I'm enjoying my day already. Thom got me one of these little lovelies.

Clever man that he is, he wrapped it up and put it in my knitting bag so that I would be sure to stumble upon it early in the day. Clearly, there will be some procrastinating happening at work today.

This evening, I intend to enjoy a lovely dinner at L'Espalier where I will ignore all of the good eating habits that I have been cultivating for the past month. I plan to indulge in all of my favorite food groups -- cheese, butter, chocolate, and alcohol. And then, get back up on the wagon tomorrow.

Thanks for all the lovely birthday wishes in my comments, emails, and Ravelry. I'm feeling the love. I like 30 so far.

  • Yes, yes, yes! This is not a day for tofu and celery. This is a day for chocolate and very expensive red wine.

    Happy birthday! :-) :-) :-)

  • Welcome to 30! It's been pretty good for me so far, except that in a way it fees like 13 again! Everything's new, but at least this time I have a paycheck and a driver's license. :)
