Dear Birthday Month,
You’ve been fabulous. From the fun little things to the things that made my heart burst, I worked hard (even amidst my roller coaster moments) to let you live up to your name. I crossed so many things off the list and added a few as days rolled by fast. I left quite a few fun things undone, but that just means 2012 gets its own set of happy. Speaking of, I will say that you’re a fabulous prelude to my 2012 One Word that will be revealed tomorrow! So, thank you for turning something I dreaded into a little bit of happy.
