Today is Joanna’s official birthday. Since we became roommates in 2001 we officially kick off her birthday with a shot of something – tequila, vodka, JD from a mini bar in Chicago and this year it was coconut rum. This was the first year we didn’t have to follow up with a glass of milk so we could go to sleep. LOL We’re light weight drinkers. Still fun though.
I like traditions. They make me happy. Little markers in time to look forward to, plan for and anticipate. You can count on tradition, it is consistent and dependable, as long as the participants remain committed to it.
