I've been in quite a mood over turning 30 today (sorry Somer!). I didn't say I have been in a bad mood-- just a mood. I haven't been sure how to feel about it.

My cute husband took me out for dinner tonight (where I tried sushi for the first time. Just a CA roll-- but please don't take this tiny victory away from me!) When we returned to my sister's house to pick up the baby, she informed me that I was snippy during a phone conversation earlier that day. I came to the profound conclusion that I must have been feeling bad about the whole ordeal. Then she produced Eclairs from Dick's Market and I instantly felt better. After she stuck some candles in my eclairs, and spent a theatrically long time lighting them, it came time to make a wish.

"I don't know what to wish for!" I said, panicking slightly about all the wax sheeting onto the world-famous chocolate frosting. For so much of my life I have always had desperate wishes on the tip of my tongue.

My sister was just as surprised as I was. "Really?" she asked. "You don't need anything?"


"Well then-- hooray for having no wish! Blow those candles out!"
