  1. Hi, Nicole! So, I’ve been reading your blog on the sly for months now and have been trying to figure out the best time to post a comment. I figured today (since we share a birthday!) would be the perfect day. Little did I know that I would get a “shout-out” in your posting! It actually made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Although I was not really looking forward to today, I guess I have to hope that the next year will be better than the last. Happy birthday to you and your bro and to my grandpa who turns 86 today too. Write back if you get a chance. Hope you have a wonderful day.

  8. Happy Birthday, Nicole! Personally, my twenties were mostly struggle and strife. My thirties have been like a vacation in comparison. Pour yourself a glass of wine and put your feet up. You made it through!

  9. happy birthday nicki. you are amazing – you definitely made every day count these past few months- recalling and writing down your feelings, thoughts, fear, hopes. It was so great to take that journey with you. Now you just have to go crazy and relax. I love you and can’t wait to see what the next 30 years bring.

    Love, mich

  14. Happy Birthday!!!It has been an amazing ride. You are so special. You were an amazing friends in Peru but you were much more than what I thought. You are an amazing person as well. You made me think about my 30th birthday. I am 31 and I didn’t think was a big deal until I start reading your blog. I love it. It made me think in what I lost in my 30th birthday. Anyways enough of me. Happy Birthday.
