I am now fifteen!
I think I would rank this one of the best birthdays ever. Why? Though I’ve been having a tough time personally for a long time, and despite the fact that my problems are nowhere near being resolved, I was able to smile and enjoy myself for an evening. That means a lot to me. Of course, it also helps that the festivities were awesome, too.

No words, no words. I guess my relentless (non)hinting paid off– and everyone agreed it was time to adopt a rat pack. I have a lot of searching and preparing to do– I’ll be chronicling it on the blog, but I’m so excited to embark on this journey.
What was the best birthday gift you’ve ever received?
