Well, as some of you noticed, today was my 28th birthday. I have to say, it was probably one of the most enjoyable birthdays I've had in a long time.

In the morning I met up with Aaron and Julia and we trekked all the way up to The Bronx Zoo. Originally we were going to try and draw some animals, but we ended up just walking around and looking at all the animals, mostly because it was too hot to stand around in the sun, drawing. (85 and humid in OCTOBER???)

It was relaxing and a lot of fun. I think the last zoo I went to was the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, and that was a long time ago!

Then tonight Gabe and I went to see Minimum Wage which was SO much fun! Charlie did a great job and the show was totally hilarious and had some great singing (plus some nice props and puppet work by Carolyn!) We also ran in to Liz Baillie and her husband Zane! What a night...

I'm also just feeling better this year about getting older. I reread my post from last year and it seems so ridiculous. As I look back on my 20s (which are almost over) it seems like I was heart broken and confused for about 90 percent of that time... I can't IMAGINE getting to 30 and thinking, "Jeez! I wish I could go back to my 20s those were the good old days!" I only just now feel like I'm figuring out what I want to do with my life and how to do it.

So bring on those 30s! I'm ready for them. And thank you everyone for all the nice birthday wishes I received! It made for a great day.

The further I get from my adolescence and early 20's, the better my life gets. I say bring it on, 28!
