So, as you might have heard, I turned 30 on Sunday. Today, Mark is turning a number somewhat larger than that. Also, while we know we were in the same room beforehand, this is the anniversary of the day we were first introduced. (It took about another month for us to decide we didn’t totally hate talking to each other, though. And a bit more time after that for us to decide we actually enjoyed each other’s company.)

And ALSO, today is our friend Anna’s birthday as well. She is not as old as we are. Yet. But we love her even when she reminds us of that!

So today is a day of triple blessings for me: it brought two people very dear into my life, and brought one of them twice over. Happy birthday to you both.
