Since this picture was taken, a lot has happened in my life.  (Hmmmm.  Ya think?)

I've gotten an education, traveled the world, lived in lots of different places and met some really wonderful people.

I'd just like to thank all those that made it possible - mom, dad, grandparents - those that have gone before me; and all those who have made it fun: my good brother and family, beloved friends - biped and the four-legged furry kind, and loved ones all over the globe.

It's been interesting so far.  Now, heading into the final chapters, I wonder about the future, and sure hope there's a few good surprises left.

You never know, do you? 

So, have some cake and ice cream today.  Live it up.  I'm sure going to try!

Um...this is from Linnea, not Piper. Ha! Although she wishes you a Happy Birthday as well.
