Erika, Happy Birthday! and I hope you have many more happy years. You are a very happy person with your head in the right place, I think, from reading your blog and your son's blog for years, so the only advice I can think of to give you is to keep on keeping on and to remember to Live, Laugh, and Love.

Anna Holler and Raiznhail
This is my 33rd year too. I've been thinking a lot about what I'll do with it.
Yesterday, a friend in Colorado told me that her neighbors have botox parties. I've never heard of such a think and I was horrified. They have actual parties where a doctor or some sort of botox authorized person shows up and injects the party-goers faces.
So, this made me think that this year I'm going to work harder on accepting myself as I am. It made me so sad to think that other people who are my age are out there shooting poisons into their faces to fight off the wrinkles.
So... I guess that my advice is to really embrace yourself. For some people (though I have a strong suspicion this isn't YOU) aging can be very scary. My thought is that it's important to value it and like it.
Also, this year I want to make more time for my friendships. I haven't been very good at that.
I know that this isn't advice! Maybe, as your friend, the best advice I can give you is to spend some time with ME!!!!!!!!! xoxo

Happy, Happy 33! Always trust your instincts, they will never let you down. Be true to yourself. Be your best self. Give back when you can to your community,or a neighbor,or a friend. It could be as simple as a hug. It could be a few hours of child care to a single parent. It could be company for an elderly person. But, whatever it is, it is a way of being grateful for what you have. And lastly give thanks every day for the blessings of another day and the gift of each other. Love, and Respect, Brenda
