And my birthday wish for me...

I blew out candles on a stack of cupcakes for my birthday on Friday, and although today is the actual day, I made my wish then. Usually, I never make a wish on the candles, their symbolism just doesn't strike me at all. But this time I'd decided to let myself be caught up in the moment. I wished for love...and more importantly I wished for the courage to let it happen to me again and this time, to recognize it, accept it and not overanalyze it to death.

So, in lieu of that, I placed another personal ad online. And I put some pictures with it. And I got several emails this morning...and I've decided I'll email responses back to at least three and see where it goes.

YAY! Happy birthday

I always feel pressured when the candle-blowing occurs because I don't really believe in the wish I make to actually happen but I still lamely do it every time! ;P

Laurie/Buggy: you could, of course, take the wish in a non-superstitious way, and think of it as a goal for which to aim by your next birthday (and well done you on not being superstitious in the first place).

Happy birthday!!!

I try to do the three-at-a-time email thing, too. It's just the right amount to keep your options open, without becoming too overwhelming and confusing. Good luck! I hope this will be your year.
