Happy Birthday to Me!

December babies, raise your hands!

I LOVE having a December Birthday. Forget combined gifts - that's mostly a myth. For the most part, I never had an idea that my birthday was any different than my other friends', because my parents and family always did a great job making my day extra-special. Plus, I never had to go to school on my birthday and the whole world was decorated with lights and bows, so that was pretty sweet.

Having a birthday party was (and is) difficult, though. December babies have to compete with studying for finals, taking finals, family visits in town, travel and vacations out of town. There is never a "perfect" night for a party. And it is rarely celebrated on your actual birthday, because who's free a few days before or after Christmas?

So here's a bit shout-out to all of my friends over the years that have made my birthday celebrations extra-fun - you all rock. This year's was no exception out in Midtown. Ri Ra, Door 44, Cosmo Lava and a lot of my fav people, what a great night!!
