It’s Kate’s 40th birthday. I was going to write a song, but it’s been a tricky month. I was going to write a rhapsodic essay about all the things she is, but . . . well, I think she’d rather I spend the day with her than spend it doing that. So instead here is a list of some of the things about her I think are fabulous (I almost came up with commentary for each, but that would be a can of worms akin to the rhapsodic essay). I will simply say that it’s telling that I had to cut myself off at 40 rather than scraping the bottom of the barrel once I hit 14, and for anyone who knows her, this is appropriate. xo
