I don't have time to write a real post since sweetie and I are getting ready for a birthday trip to the beach, but these make me feel pretty optimistic. Thanks to my friends Sam and Lilliana for the excellent art, to Amy for the cutest book ever, and superthanks to everyone who came to my birthday and celebrated love. I promise a real post about the Friday Love Poems Anthology soon. Have a lovely holiday everyone. I'm glad you were born!
