I get so excited about my birthday. All happy and smiley for no reason. I'm away from home this summer, but I've been having friends call all morning to check in and say hi. I love that.

It's also a stat holiday today, so I like to tell everyone they all have the day off to celebrate :)

I'm just sharing my happiness with you all - I hope you're all having wonderful Mondays, too.

I apologize for the positive Monday post. I promise I will return to regularly scheduled Monday grumpiness as soon as I am back to staring down 30 bleary-eyed high school students every Monday morning...
