28 Will be Great

You wouldn't believe it by looking at me but I am 28 today. Tonight I'm going out with my parents and Shawn to this cute little fish and chips place. They have PASTIES! If you don't know what one is, you will thank me when you do. My grandma's dad was from Cornwall and she used to make them for us. I can't wait! Then, Saturday we are going to party like it's 1991 and go cosmic bowling (more on that this weekend!).

I found a photo album in my place so I thought I would share some pictures from my early years with you.

This birthday seems a bit harder than others. Usually I tell everyone I know that my birthday is coming up and I make a huge deal out of it. This year, I feel a little sad and behind sort of. I have a lot of friends getting married and I feel like I'm behind in that part of my life. When I do feel that way though, I look at all I have done. I've traveled a lot of places, lived abroad, I own a condo and a dog, I'm a doctor for God's sake. So, even though I'm behind in the marriage and family portion of the show, at least I have other things to show for my 28 years. PS if you can't tell from all these pictures my hair is not naturally red :)

Here's to many more birthdays!!
