Today my kids turn 6 (Gabi) and 2 (Ray). Yes, I'm so neurotic that my kids have the same birthday. The cake above is the first of the day, as we'll be having a small family party tonight. And that's it! No piñata, no goodie bags, no mass chaos. I'm so glad it ended up this way. Now we just need to keep them from fighting over toys.
Super happy birthday wishes to Steve, too. If I had photoshop, and time, I would've written his name on the above cake, too.
In unrelated news, it's been less than two weeks, and we've already received 146 submissions to BOR. It's fantastic! If you're thinking about sending us some work, and still deliberating, don't wait too long, as I expect us to start accepting stuff next week. I will keep you posted! This makes me so nervous. Will another journal swoop in and steal the poems that have stolen my heart? No, please no!
Another beautiful, sunny day today. I may just have to go read outside.
