twenty

20 years ago today, this was me:


Now, this is me:

I had every intention of writing something uncharacteristically sappy and/or meaningful for today, but some things just aren't meant to be sometimes.  Today, I shall end the "teen" years of my life, and retreat to my house, my favorite place in the world other than out on the road.  And I'll be with my favorite girls, and we'll eat pizza and popcorn, and we'll probably watch lame movies, and we'll stay up talking and giggling late into the night, and I'll feel loved and think about being 20, and I'll be happy that I get to share it with them and you.

  4. I recall turning twenty.... I was sick with a fever all day, and Paul had to go back to Rhode Island the day before, so I was a little miserable BUT he gave me the first season of Sherlock for my birthday so I spent the day curled up on the couch and watching that, so it wasn't so bad. ;-)

    Happy Birthday!
