30

Yes, today I turn 30. Unlike some people I am unafraid to announce my birthday (nor am I brazen enough to beg for gifts on the internet). Honestly, I forgot that today was the day until I got my card from Mom & Dad (thanks y'all). Then I forgot about it again till I got an unexpected happy birthday email from BC (one of my Brooklyn church-going heroes). Then I forgot all about it again until Brent came home and lavished me with gifts and take-out.

You parental types weren't kidding when you told me having a kid means actually living life centered around someone else for REAL.

Happy Birthday to me!

P.S. And thanks to the cool Lutheran neighbors who surprised me with cake & a birthday dirge after dinner. You will forever remain the "cool Lutheran neighbors" no matter where you move off to.

Hope you had a good day, despite having forgotten it was your birthday. My sister, also a Jennifer, turns 30 on Sunday. It's the week of the Jennifers.

Don't ever tell me such a disgusting poop story about Clare ever again. Especially when you involve it with mac and cheese.

Happy Belated Birthday! You seem so much more mature than me, I forget we are the same age!
