Angel here and I have shared with you all some of my most personal stories in life. One of the most valuable lessons I have learned over the years is family is not always the group of people you are born into but those who have come alongside you in your journey and never left.
Angel here. I have been jokingly and very seriously reminding everyone for weeks now that my 40th birthday is this Thursday. In the 39 years, I have spent on this earth I have had quite the journey. Lots of ups and downs, bumps and bruises, and plenty of valuable lessons.
On Monday I turned 40 years old. An age that for whatever reason is widely regarded as the beginning of a downward slide to the grave. Truth be told, I don't feel any different today than I did on Sunday when I was still in my 30's, but if I'm going to truly embrace the start of my death spiral, I guess I should start with a Mid-Life Crisis.
Gavin turned 29 today (February 8th), so with the help of our web queen, Ashley, we decided to surprise him with what every 29-year-old wants, a superhero-themed birthday cake from Piece of Cake Bakery in Evansville.
