portrait of the librarian at a young age

Today is my birthday. I am 38. It’s been a pretty good day so far. One of the places I am going today is the library.

    Happy birthday, and I love the photo. You look about three years old?

    Clicking through, I see the photo is in your mom’s Flickr stream which is so cool. I like this one, too.

    Those first books are so important to us. My husband and I drove past the first library that my mom took me to on a trip across country last year.

    I also wanted to let you know that I really likt the links you provide from your blog.

    Happy Birthday, Jessamyn. I am a Virgo too, and I would like to be turning 38! My b-day (in 2 weeks) is my 50th.
    Loved the picture…reminded me of myself (the hair style, the sweater, the book).
    I am glad to know you!

    You don’t look a day over four.

    Happy B-lated Birthday!

    In our family, we do English first, then Portugese “Parabens Para Voce,” (roughly translated: congratulations) and if I’m around, Polish, “Sto Lat” (literally, one hundred years.) “Sto Lat” is also sung at civic events, like when the Poles elected Lech Walesa as their president.

    Happy belated birthday Jessamyn. Oddly enough, we share the day, though I turned 40. :)

    I only started reading your blog recently – thank you for it.
