Treinta y tres

When I got to work this morning, my desk was covered with crepe paper and flowers.
And this was hanging from one of the streamers.

Thirty-three today. I'm not one of those women who acts offended when the topic of age is brought up. I've earned my years, and I'm happy to keep advancing.

Thank you, Robb! And thank you for all the Maori I'm learning through your comments... I love it!

Oops, I got here a little late but ... happy birthday Emma! Hope you had a wonderful day. [Guess what? My birthday is exactly one week before yours. I'm three years older, though.]

I don't understand why so many women get offended by age and how old they are. Who cares? It's just a number.

"Birthdays are good for you: the more you have, the longer you live."

I forgot to say ... I did sit down to email you but I couldn't find your address any where. Feel free to email me at the address on my blog page if you'd like. Have a great weekend!
