Happy Birthday Samantha!

23 years ago today my darling little sister was born. Happy Birthday Samantha Lorraine!
isn't she cute?
I hope your day is bright and sunny and full of happy little moments despite being at work and school all day... welcome to adulthood, where birthdays are no longer filled with helium balloons, delicately frosted cakes adorned with big block numbered candles and a table covered with a pretty themed tablecloth full of various size and shape presents and gift bags with curling ribbon bows. :) Sometimes I wish I was a kid again.... but then I remember how much I adore my freedom and not having rules or someone (love you mom!) bossing me around, telling me what to do and most importantly, I can eat cereal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner... which I do often.

I'm pretty sleepy today... I spent my day yesterday writing a research paper then wandering the aisles of Michael's and Half Price Books. I wrapped up my day by sitting at the bar at Hooters where my lovely Shasta is a bartender. As usual, I let her talk me into staying much longer than I had planned and I'm paying for it this morning... but it's so fun hanging out with her, so it was worth it!

Today I get to find out how I did on my math exam! My fingers are crossed....

To continue right along with celebrating National Poetry Month, here's a little poem by Emily Dickinson that I love... hopefully you will too :)

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all.

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And n the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
