Have fun in Hawaii!

I'm glad you lodged a complaint about the cop. He was a jerk.

A year ago today you were awesome.

Today you continue to be awesome.

Really, nothing has changed. Except that I know you, too AND your cupcakes.

xoxox

P.S. - Oh, Internet -"cupcakes" is not some kinky code for mommy on mommy action, or something pervvy like that. Get your mind out of the gutter, Internet.

Sheesh.

I am most grateful to Grace for bringing us back together again. She's like glue! Or perhaps like the paste in Supergirl's kindergarten...all sticky and sweet and you want to eat her.

We'll let the Internet think about THAT and the cupcakes.
