Bye Bye Birthday Month ….

This month I turned 27. Fraught with parties, a ‘snow day’, spinning until I almost got sick, one dangerous game of spoons, Italian dinner in an underground cave, Christian Bale on IMAX, a new President, and about six occasions that required Crumb cupcakes (if you haven’t tried them, I feel sorry for your souls) it was a fantastic birthday month. 20/20 hindsight has been good to us here.

Birthday month 2009 is up there as one of the top 3, “grown-up” time wise. My best friend informs me that real grown-ups never use the word ‘grown-up’ but she’s 25 and what does she know, anyway? My horoscope in the New Year was good so we’ve got that to look forward to. New loves, new clients and new clothes seem to be on a perfectly visible horizon, so that’s exciting too. I wave my handkerchief at the party as it runs back into the winter woods.

I wonder what birthday-month 2010 will bring! Raise your glass, loves. Here’s to another good year!
Alright! I rub my hands together, slap myself in the face and finally, finally GET BACK TO WORK!

  1. Here’s to all the fabulous new clients and clothes and of course the love…and the cupcakes.Will definitely make time during Surtex week to visit the Village location with cupcake-fiend-of-a-husband. It’s already on the calendar…can’t trust that I’ll remember anything, even as important as cupcakes, between now and then.Careful with the spinning and spoons.My post-birthday gift to you: I will always wear shoes in your presence.

About last night. 🦌💛 Crawling home on all fours after celebrating at the epic Puppy Par-tay my brother and sister-in-law put on for my dog nephew, Milo tonight. It was everything and more, complete with a bone-shaped swimming pool. #dreamtheimpawssibledream 🤘#livewithnoregrets We otter go exploring more rivers. 😍
#lifeachievementunlocked A Mama said there’d be days like this😍
Totally alone in the Natural History Museum’s Hall of Mammals for hours! Hashtag Blessed. It’s 1 AM. Do you know where your mini gummi bears are? 
#fairgame #latenightinthestudio #goodbyeoctober We’re celebrating today. I opened my eyes to Matt  crowing, “Amber! Wake up. They made it!” We have been following the inspiring pilgrimage of my mom @incredimombo & sister @prilliegirl_shakazoozoo via text & @instagram for weeks. They set out to trek across Spain a month and a half ago. This morning they walked their 500th mile and crossed into Santiago. Having read a lot about their journey before they set out to do it, I felt concerned at their determination. The Camino is not easy. It requires walking 10-20 miles a day 7 days a week. You have to carry everything you need on your back. The toll is physical, mental & spiritual. Many prepared and experienced hikers do not make it to the end of the journey the first or second time they attempt it. ☀️ So we’re dreaming impossible dreams and celebrating too. It would seem today is a good day to set out to do the impossible. When we moved to Utah I was sure I’d been too spoiled by my childhood on the ocean and my twenties in Brooklyn, to ever find anything to love in the desert. I fully planned on dying of boredom. I don’t know what I’ll do when we outgrow this little Wasatch apartment of ours! Watching the Sun kiss the mountains goodnight from our tiny balcony is beyond description. This picture doesn’t begin to do it justice. Home again.
