Happy Birthday to me!

Yes, it's true. It's my birthday today. I am 35 years young. I can't believe it. Inside I still fell like the crazy, big haired 12 year old running around in the country with no shoes on and a book stuffed in my pants. Where does the time go?

My day will be like the others; running after a 2 year old and attempting to clean the house BUT I did get a chocolate cake out of the deal yesterday and I will get to see one of my favorite musicians this Saturday. Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller! yeah!

Though it's been kind of a shit year (sorry for the language) with getting laid off, my son's broken leg and my grandma passing, I did have the fortune to be able to spend some wonderful time at home with my son AND I found all of you!

I have to say never in my many years of book selling would I have thought I would be reading and reviewing books online, of all places. But I have found a nice, warm fuzzy place here at
Red Headed Book Child and I hope I will continue into my next birthday!

Thanks for sharing along with me and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Ahhhhhhh
You and I are so alike.
I'm turning 34 in August and it still amazes me.
On the inside I feel like a frizzy curly haired little girl hiding under my bed with a book.
My say:
-Remember that what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
-When the going gets tough-laugh or you'll cry.
-I love your blog.
-A giant happy happy birthday!

Happy Birthday! I don't comments often enough, but really enjoy our blog! I recently turned 29 and while many of my friends are nervous about the big 30 I just shrug because I still feel 19! Thats all that matters anyway! Hope this year is wonderful!!!
