My twenty-seventh year on this good green Earth God created is here...
I have loved every year, hands down
There have been ups and downs, but mostly memorable ups
I can almost remember every scraped knee, game won, family loss, friend gained
I am the most thankful person to be who am I am, and be from where I am.
Thank you to my pea, family and friends who have been there for me, my birthday is that day I remember you most!
I love you
(and as BRS noted five times already today, my last year as VRB)
Many special years!
Wish I could find the teen years, then again, I am sparing the humility.
Think: unibrow, buck teeth, awkward teen years, late bloomer - you get the picture!
One - my Winona Bray look according to my Mother
Two - with my sissy
Three - with my mama
Four - with a cake the size of my body
Five - with the bestie, CJN, my MOH
Six - at my favortire restaurant, Chin's Garden.
I cried when they closed when I was in college, like absolute gushing tears
I miss Mei and the wonton chef that we visited in pre-school
My mother and her mother ate there when she was pregnant with me!
Seven - looking super
Eight - My First Holy Communion - couldn't find a b-day shot, but May?
Nine - eek getting towards the awkward years!
Eleven - bangs hiding the uni...
This is the year I woke up and Mother pretended she forgot my birthday and that night my best friends through me a surprise Jelly Belly Birthday party
Thirteen - my watermelon obsession years begin...
Need to find 14-19!
Twenty - Kauai year
Twenty-three - year
Twenty-four at the A's Game!
