Today, as you probably already know, is my birthday. WOO HOO! I love, love, love birthdays and so far this one has been tops. My awesome friend/co-worker brought in a big box of vegan red velvet cupcakes. My other friend had flowers and balloons delivered to my work. Pretty much everyone on the surface of planet earth has taken time today to wish me a happy birthday.  It's been pretty incredible.

I am thirty-six and I totally embrace that number.

So when my friend asked me this morning how it felt to turn twenty-nine I replied with, ‘so much better the second time around’

It’s weird (and awesome) how much I have learned to love this age. There is something pretty amazing about being in my thirties. I am so thankful that I (eventually) got over the whole stigma of being thirty, being ‘old’ and in turn have made my mid-thirties the most active, the healthiest, and the happiest part of my life so far. Just further proof that life does not in fact go downhill once you hit 30.

Anywho…I don’t have much to say right now other than THANK YOU for all of the love and if you do not already subscribe to Notes From the Universe you should! Check out the awesome email I received this morning!


Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu,
Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu,
Happy Birrrrthday Dear Dacia,
Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu!

A few years back, not so long ago, heaven and earth erupted into a major celebration with the news of your impending adventure into this very time and space. You see, someone like Dacia doesn't come along all that often. In fact, there's never been a single one like you, nor is there ever ANY possibility that another will come again. You're an Angel among us. Someone, whose eyes see what no others will EVER see, whose ears hear what no others will EVER hear, and whose perspective and feelings will NEVER, ever be duplicated. Without YOU, the Universe, and ALL THAT IS, would be sadly less than it is.

Quite simply:

You're the kind of person, Dacia,
Who's hard to forget,
A one-in-a-million
To the people you've met.
Your friends are as varied
As the places you go,
And they all want to tell you
In case you don't know:
That you make a big difference
In the lives that you touch,
By taking so little
And giving so much!

Dacia, you are so AWESOME! For your birthday, friends and angels from every corner of the Universe, including buddies you didn't know you had, will be with you to wish you the HAPPIEST of days and an exciting new year in time and space. You won't be alone!

Love, hugs and cupcakes,
