It's My Birthday

When you get older, birthdays aren't as big of a deal - until you hit the big 4-0, that is. I'm a few years away from that milestone, so to me, it's just sort of another day.

So I'm not doing a whole lot today. Lounging around, eating my birthday cake (because calories don't count on your birthday!), watching a few movies, and tonight we'll go out for dinner. Since it's also Father's Day, my husband and I get to share the day. :-)

I already received some very nice presents - a Lifehouse CD from hubby, a beautiful bracelet from my mom, and some birthday cash from my dad, which I will undoubtedly use at my local Barnes & Noble.

Happy Father's Day to all those dads out there, and a special Happy Father's Day to my own Dad!

    (PS I've just discovered Lifehouse, thanks to Jill Shalvis. 'Whatever it takes' is going to be the song of the next book. Fab stuff.)
