Thursday, June 27th, 1974

For the first time in YEARS, I had a birthday celebration thrown for me in honor of my special day. My pachanga was Tanya's idea (I puffy heart her!) and Yvonne helped her organize it. Several of my dearest friends joined me in an ambiant dinner at Cool River, followed by some groovin' on their dance floor. It was a nice change of pace and I was giddy at seeing my friends dolled up in makeup and heels. We're usually slumping kids around with stains on our frumpy clothes. Last night, I felt surrounded by much happiness and love. Have I mentioned before I have THE MOST amazing women as friends?

Donning my new apron. There's an inside joke to this and I LOVE it!
