In a twist of fate, I ended up ringing in my birthday at Veselka of all places, with @cassieclare of all people, after the beautiful Mortal Instruments party on Thursday. Thanks to Cassie, Josh, Holly, Val, Diana, Kami, Vania, and Mari for such a fun night, Nova, Brooks, Elizabeth, Andrea, Stella, and Jeremy for such a fun week, and thanks to you for all the birthday wishes. You really are the best.

[That’s the stamina rune on my wrist, FYI.]
