( 12:02 AM ) teahouse
As some of my old and loyal readers know, tomorrow (9/11) is my birthday.
Fully ensconced in my 30s now (there is no way I'm not "thirtysomething" anymore), I intend to celebrate in style.
I've really come to feel comfortable in my own skin, happy with who I am and content with the adult I've become.
I never felt this way in my 20s. So far I must say that my 30s have been a much better time. It's not even close!
So this year I will, as always, spend some time in quiet contemplation and mourning for those who died on 9/11.
But in the midst of the sadness, I'll also take a moment to celebrate just being alive.
