My birthday was last Tuesday. Y que fantastico, que perfeco!

I woke to a banner outside my door,

And then I returned to my house. And wanted to go to a chill coffee place with my roomies, nothing fancy as I’m not big into parties. I was watching the next installment of Full House my dad sent me and didn’t realize how late it was when Yara started calling me. I jumped out of bed and looked around my room, looking to wear something I felt like myself in. I grabbed my overalls, a big fashion taboo according to Dutch roomy. But I didn’t care, it’s my birthday! Then I saw Yara and Brenda and they had dressed nice. What’s going on? Yara looks guilty….something’s going on….we started walking to the taxi and then…… my girls. The girls of Our Little Roses. Swarms of 'em. Beautiful and fierce to the last one.

And dancing!

and my face getting smeared with a second birthday cake.

What a great way to ring in my 24th year. Blessed, blessed, blessed. By my roommates, my students, my girls, my Creator.

What a fiesta you had, Em! What joy expressed on your face and all the girls! The video was just awesome watching them all come up and hug you! It's one thing to have you describe it and then another to actually watch them do it just as you say, so amazing! TWO birthday cakes? And TWO face-smashes to go with them! So wonderful! And so cool to watch you DANCE, Em - I never knew that you knew THE FUNKY CHICKEN!!! (or was that the Macarena???) LOVE AND MISS YOU!!!...Dad.
