I really can't express the gratitude I feel for all the birthday love I received this year. Every call, message, and token of affection I received left it's own sweet imprint on my heart. And especially to those who were able to snuggle into 142 Sullivan with me: there is no better feeling than when folks just show up for you - with very little notice, in the pouring rain and for nothing at all elaborate or pressing. Some didn't even know if they were walking into a home, a dinner party or a bar, but there they were, hangin, toasting (and roasting!) singing a terribly off-key Happy Birthday with their amazing energy and gorgeous faces. I am so so thankful for everyone and everything that made this birthday so blissfully simple and so totally extraordinary. That's love.
