#30: Hey, it's my birthday! Going full circle on this thankful enterprise I launched 30 days ago, I am thankful again for…my birthday! I am thankful for the actual fun festivities. I was spoiled by friends and family. I was taken out to lunches, dinners (BlackSalt: amazing. 1905: the appetizers blew my mind, try the snails. Cashion's: Perfect and wonderful as usual, and the lamb tongue may have been the best dish I've had in a while.) Post-Cashion's, friends joined me for relatively low-key drinks at Bourbon last night, and basically, the way I celebrated was pretty much perfect.
I am also thankful for, you know, the birthday. 30! Here it is! And it's both exciting and no big deal, which I think is pretty good way to approach it. I am really ready to get started on my 30 While 30 list. You'll still be hearing lots about it—I plan to document achieving the goals here. Exhaustively. You'll be all like, no, I don't need to read about you doing a dumb headstand again. It's gonna rule.
Finally, thanks to everybody who left comments or sent emails or told me in person how much you liked the 30 While 30 series, and who had great responses and ideas to contribute. It's already been such a rewarding experience—and I can't wait for the next 365 days of it.
