My birthday is in close to an hour, I usually if not always hate my birthday, it never lives up to my expectations. This year will be the first year I’ll be somewhere all day where people will have to acknowledge it, and I have plans for at night with actual friends and plans for the weekend. I’m trying to not be excited because I don’t want to get my hopes up and be let down. I’m just hoping I have a good day/weekend.

An e-mail from my Grandpa about my name being on the Mast Head
“Hi Riss , grandpa is so proud of you. I saw your name in your magazine, but I couldn’t make out the picture. I sent your email to me to Dottie and Michelle, this is Michelle’s email she sent back to me. LOVE YOU grandpa.”
He is the best.

Good story: This past Christmas was my first without my Grandma, as my mom was cleaning out our guest room closet for family to sleepover she found a paper bag with 2 sets of jewelry in it that had my Grandma’s handwriting on it. I immediately took the gold/pearl one and have been wearing it a lot since. My Mom borrowed it today and her boss figured out that it was a Trifari necklace, and stumbled upon this ad for the jewelry set! From a Harper’s Bazaar issue in 1962. How crazy!
