Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday!
I know not everyone loves their birthday, but I love mine.
I love to be celebrated and honestly I think one day a year is just not enough.

I have been telling Little Girl for a few years now that I am 25, and this year she caught on to the fact that I need to start getting older at each birthday, so according to her, I am turning 26 today!
Sharing my birthday with me:
Shannon Doherty 1971
Vince Gill 1957
David Letterman 1947
David Cassidy 1950
Andy Garcia 1956
Tom Clancy 1947
Clair Danes 1979

I thought I would share a picture or two of me, and then as i was looking through all our pictures, it turns out I am most often the one behind the camera, so there are not a lot of great pictures of me, but here are a few I found and am willing to share (because honestly there are a few I will never share and really should delete).
