I’m officially at the point where I don’t even remember my own birthday until the day before. All the sudden today – BAM – I’m 33.

This morning my dad posted this picture on facebook, which might be the best thing I’ve ever seen, mostly because that’s still my default facial expression.


And then my brother and sister-in-law memed it…

So… best birthday present ever. Still laughing.

Some days I still don’t feel like I should be trusted with adult responsibilities, yet I’ve been an “adult” for a long time now. It’s been a weird journey, probably not what I would have pictured, but I have no complaints about where I’m at or how I got here.

I’ve worked at the same place for almost 12 years (holy. crap.) and I don’t hate my job. I’d rather have a job in the horse industry somehow (sales? marketing? product development? no idea), but maybe someday the perfect thing will come along.

Henry was supposed to be a short term resale, and we all see how that worked out. He’s my shining star and has made life a lot more interesting and fun and rewarding. That horse isn’t going anywhere any time soon.


As far as what the next 33 will bring… who knows. I don’t have much of a plan, so I’ll just follow the swing of things and see where it all ends up. Hopefully there will be a lot more ups, inevitably several downs, and I’m sure plenty of surprises along the way. With horses staying firmly at the center of my world, naturally.

I do know one thing – today I get CAKE!

  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! Have a fantastic day (from someone who just hit 50 (WTF) age is just a number) It is how you feel that is your real age (And the way you and Bobby act i am sure you are both around 12 still just like me) 🙂

    Seriously have a great day! (AND OMG 12 years at your job. WOW YOU are dedicated)


  2. Happy Birthday, birthday twin! Today I turn 39, so I’m ahead of you and I’m still not adulting well.

    May your cake be moist, the frosting not-nasty and may these temperatures drop so we can resume riding without melting!!!

  3. Happy Happy Birthday!!! Don’t worry, I’m way older than you are, and essentially in a very similar place. That meme is HILARIOUS! And also, I’m happy you got cake. No birthday is complete without cake. Don’t every let anyone tell you differently. Hope you get to celebrate all weekend long!


  4. Wishing you a happy belated with many more to come! Thank god for family members with great senses of humor too haha – probably helps keep every feeling young too 😉


  5. I think that photo needs a million memes! I love the compilation video of all the weird things Henry licks. Do you think he does it for salt or when he is content? My last Halfinger, Bodhi, would like his lips with his eyes half masked for minutes sometimes. I always thought he looked happy. 🙂
