Today I turn 33 and am having catfish with friends tonight, followed by pound cake flown in from Georgia by my wonderful Mums. (Flown in, UPS’d, same thing…”flown in” just sounds so ‘Dynasty’ and fancy.) This is a far cry from last year’s party at the Cosmopolitan with a suite, cabana, and fondant cake
that was barely edible. But I digress; sometimes less is more, and this year all I want for my burfday is catfish, so catfish I shall have.
That’s really all I have to share this week. I know..for once no complaining, no tangents, and no pseudo-deep philosophical musings.
I do, however, want to share a wonderful quote from Lilly Pulitzer, who died yesterday at the age of 81. I never knew until I read an AP article on her last night that she only started designing her famous dresses after she had a nervous breakdown. Anyway, Ms. Pulitzer once said:
“Being happy never goes out of style.”
I also wanted to share the complete Serenity Prayer by American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr. Our pastor shared it in this week’s church newsletter and I’d not read the entire prayer in quite awhile, so I thought it was worth sharing with my readers in its entirety.
Here’s to being carefree and 33,
