Happy Valentines Day

Today is a very special day. Not only is it Valentines Day, you know that made up Hallmark holiday that three quarters of this world says they hate, but secretly loves, because they hope that special someone will do something special to surprise them, which then let's them know they really are loved holiday. No? Am I the only one that feels that way?

Anyway... for me, it is a very special day because, you guessed it,it is my BIRTHDAY! Today I turn the big 2-8. That is two years from the even bigger 3-0. Wow!

I am very blessed to have found the people I share my life with each and everyday. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for the warm birthday wishes. I am truly humbled. 

And, my Mom is finally glad to have Valentine's Day back. For the past twenty four years or so, since I moved to New York, It has always been my Birthday. Now, she can finally be spoiled like every woman deserves on this made up, fake, Hallmark holiday. 

But for me, I hope everyone just thinks of today as my birthday! 

Today, my boss is taking our office out to lunch at her favorite Italian restaurant for my birthday. My office is particularly good at finding any excuse to celebrate with champagne and sweets. 

Then, I'm headed to sunny California to celebrate my birthday again, with the whole family! That's right, Mom and Dad included! What is a better way to celebrate than spend time with friends and family, while listening to your favorite New York based band in LA? It's like it was meant to be! 


Not only will we be celebrating my birthday, but we will also be toasting to my beautiful parents, amazing 30 years of marriage! I love both of you so much.

I would like to wish each and every one of you a Happy Valentine's Day! May you surround yourself with amazing friends, family, food and fun on this joyous made up holiday and use it as the perfect excuse to lay in bed, eat sweet treats, and watch all the girly chick flicks you want, with your best friends and loved ones!

  3. Happy birthday, Lexi! I've already tweeted my bday msg to you but I don't think that's enough! I wanted to make some cupcakes and donuts for you but I'm way over here in the Philippines. :( Have a rockin' birthday!

  4. I'm one of those folks who hates Valentine's Day, so I definitely thought of February 14th as your birthday! :) When I told my students I didn't like Valentine's Day, they all gasped. LOL

    Congrats to your parents on 30 years of marriage! In a time when so many marriages are ending in divorce, it's nice to know some folks are still in it for the long haul. :)
