I gotta say it is SO good to see you smile! :) I am also in agreement that the little bit of weight wears very well on you. You look so healthy and beautiful. I wish I coulda been there to share in the celebration. I guess I got in my annual Seattle b-day trip a bit earlier this year but it seems strange to be so far away right now. Glad the gang could help you celebrate.
Thanks! I do think the fact I have a lower pain level helps too and I'm still in the "normal" BMI range, so I'm not really overweight, it's just that I'd like a buffer so when I have a baby I won't end up with health risks. I miss you too, but I'm glad I got to see you this year even if it wasn't for either of our birthdays.
