What an awesome day guys. Seriously, thank you.
I’m not going to sleep tonight until I’ve personally thanked each one of you for getting in touch with me today. I can’t believe how many of you I heard from! Emails, facebook, texts, and more phone calls than I knew how to handle…just incredible. I got to spend the day with old friends and new all over the city. The thing that got me this year is that it’s the first time I haven’t really planned anything big to get all of my friends in one place. I’ve alluded to it, but the past month has been pretty hard on me in many respects…and I guess I just didn’t bother. The only reason I even recognize my birthday is so I have a reason to see everyone I love at once anyway, so the day doesn’t mean much to me otherwise. Yet even without planning something fun, so many people made a point to find a way to get together regardless, and from crazy distances! I was blown away.
It’s funny how even the smallest efforts make the biggest differences.
I have to share this with you too for those of you who don’t follow on instagram (which I rarely use anyway). I was sitting in church, running on 3 hours of sleep, when I came up with what may be the dumbest idea I’ve ever had…but it was hilarious at the time.
I called it the Birthday Bird.
Yes, I know.
And yes the face is a requirement.
Readers, that’s how you know I love you…I share my tardness with you. Forgive me.
Thank you all again.
See you tomorrow,
