About turning a year older.

A lot of people say growing older can be daunting.

You have more responsibilities…

Your outfit NEEDS to match the candle and your drink.

In this case, a forty-year-old married man with a kid by the name of Michael Bublé.

But things are not so scary when you have got wonderful people with you.

Like your brothers who could finish the 20-inch pizza for you (and wanted to order another one).

For all you know, your brothers will finish the 20-inch pizza for you.

So thank you everyone for making me feel so loved every year. Your time, thoughts, cards, texts, phone calls and Facebook messages mean the world to me.

I guess it’s not true what they say about things being daunting. Turning a year older turns out to be… heartwarming. 🙂
