30 is the new… me.

Groundhog cupcakes: the dish du jour.

Fast approaching is our nation’s most sacred of holidays, Groundhog Day. On February 2nd, Punxsutawney Phil shall enlighten us all with the most scientific of methods: casting shadows to predict weather. This special day was even commemorated in one of the greatest movies of all time. What a lucky girl I am that my birthday just happens to fall on this monumental holiday. This year I shall share some of the spotlight with Phil, as I do plan to celebrate the new decade that I am stoked to enter into: the 30’s. My 20’s were one hot mess of a learning experience, and I fully intend to use the wisdom I’ve gained to enrich my future. In addition, I subscribe to the notion that “your presence is my present,” but if you don’t buy into that kind of rhetoric then I’ve got some gift suggestions for me…
