I meant for these daily birthday wish posts to be something light and frothy -- a tossed off bit o' fun to start each day. Only it turned out to be more like Julianne's patented crying jags: all scrunched up shoulders, grimaced mouth, and racking sobs. Hugely effortful if you catch my drift. I can't do anything simply. It's my downfall as a blogger. Even my filler requires hours of careful crafting (sigh).
I love birthdays and cake -- if not quite as much as I love Juli -- so maybe you'll see more of them albeit in a different form. Back to the drawing board.
