About a month ago I took the plunge and turned thirty. I’d been considering it for years – since I was about 23, actually. Anyway, the deed is now done and I had a party to make it official. In classic Steph-style, I freaked out a little bit before the party started, then drank too much (had tons of fun) and ended up with a nasty cold the next day. A month later, I still have a lingering sore throat. I think we all learned a valuable lesson: Next time you look forward to something for seven years, don’t mix brandy with red wine.
Anyway – shout outs go to my husband, David, and friend, Mel, for pulling everything together. Especially when I remembered that social interaction is hard and wanted to cancel the whole shebang. You guys rule.
