I love birthdays! It’s the only day that’s all about me (and Spike Lee, my birthday twin), and while I don’t love being the center of attention, I do love all of the extra special love that comes my way. And honestly, I love being in my 30’s. It feels so much cooler than being in my 20’s, though I heartily agree with anyone who wants to check my ID! You’ll see, 20-something’s, it is fabulous.

I have had a great year with many ups and a few downs but mostly lots of growth. If I could wrap up the year in one photo it would be the photo below.

Half Moon Bay

In this next year? I want to find work that is challenging and meaningful and fun. I want to continue to grow my circle of wonderful friends and contacts. I want to volunteer more, complain less and learn to spend less time on my laptop but to get more work done.

That’s all for today. I hope you are having a good weekend, and I will be back tomorrow with my regular posting schedule.

When is your birthday? Do you have a famous birthday twin?

    Also – if people have had trouble commenting – WordPress cannot have a title that is simply a number – by adding the st at the end of 31 – it no longer considered 31 to be a date in March – that it was actually a blog title and accepts comments now. Sorry for the long-winded explanation – just trying to save some fellow bloggers confusion due to the issue we faced with today’s blog.

    Hi Meghan,

    Here’s to a wonderful next year! :)

    Happy birthday Meghan!! (And you too Spike, as I assume he reads his bday twin’s blog). Mine is Usher who is just a year older than me (and must be so embarrassed at how much more successful I am).

    Happy birthday!! I’m 31, too. My birthday is December 12th, so I have a lot of holidays to compete with as an adult, but I don’t feel my age AT ALL, so I love celebrating like I’m turning 16 over and over. :)
