Almost TOTALLY Thirty

Today I am 30. Thirty and tired. REALLY tired. Right now my birthday party is giving me a headache but I know that once the actual party day gets here, I will be beside myself with joy to surround myself with all of these people that I love. And I wish you could be there.

Since it's my birthday and I can do whatever I want to do, I'd like to give a prize away, or two. Things were pretty amazing in my 29th year and I'm hoping that my thirtieth is even better. One of the highlights was having my six-word memoir published. So, to celebrate that milestone (and myself), I'd like to give away a copy of the book (I'll even sign it like a real author and everything). The contest rules are simple, you leave me a comment and say Happy Birthday. That's it. I'll randomly pick a winner, and if only 1 of you comments – well, that makes the contest all the more easy.

So last year on my 29th birthday I decided to launch this project called almost thirty wherein I would take a photo of myself everyday until I turned 30. 366 days later and the project didn't go EXACTLY as planned, but I did take 66% of the photos. Here there are in slideshow format, or you can view them on flickr.
