It's my party, I can cry if I want to

... but I don't want to. :)

I'll be honest, it's been a tough week. In just a few days I've lost a boyfriend and the most amazing dog, incurred unexpected expenses that have depleted my bank account, and realized that my hair is now dying (I found three gray hairs!). 

Still, it's my birthday and that's reason enough to celebrate. Actually, stepping back a bit, this past year has been the best of my life and I'm really excited to see what happens -- especially with my career -- in the year ahead. I truly am very blessed. 

A special thanks to everyone who has supported me in my personal and professional endeavors, you make it possible for me to do what I love each and every day.
