Birthday!

Months ago, I saw someone with a totally awesome Steelers hat. For my birthday, lordandrei commissioned C.S. to make me one.




The best part? It's reversible. Wear one side out when we're on offense, then flip it when we're on defense!



And it is *warm* - in this thing, I might actually be willing to go to a game! The downside of a July birthday; I keep putting it on and then taking it off, scalp sweating, 30 seconds later.

Other birthday goodness included a strawberry milkshake and happy feet in the Water Steps on the North Shore.

There's a lot of stuff in my life right now that is seriously fucked up, but I'm working on a new mantra of be here now. So much joy in each moment, if I only stop to feel it. As mlerules would say, BAPAMAP (Be At Peace As Much As Possible).
