One of my favorite weekends of the year has arrived! Today marks the start of the long holiday weekend, ending with my day of birth on Tuesday.

In a valiant effort to be a grownup, I elected NOT to take my birthday off at work. Worst idea ever. Next week's going to be nuts around these parts! So I plan to celebrate hard with some of my favorite people this weekend.

On the agenda: hike with friends, seeing some lovely friends who are in town from England, dinner with my family, a boozy brunch, and whatever else I can drum up for the weekend.

Cheers, have a great holiday weekend!
