Today, Sachi makes the faithful transition to her 30's.  That's right, as of today, Sachi is 30 years old! She is all growns up.

Today also marks the end of what we've been calling the Annual July Birthday Jubilee.  My birthday was on the 17th (I turned 33) and her's is today on the 26th, creating a 10 day window of gratuitous non-stop birthday celebration.  What does that mean?  We're not sure really.  Maybe dessert with dinner, a cocktail before noon or a massage on the beach.  The jubilee takes many forms and we make it up as we go along. Mutual special treatment is a theme for sure.  

While we're talking about getting old and fragile, I must also remind us of the follies of youth.  Last night we met a puppy that couldn't have been more than 9 weeks old.  As soon as I stopped to take a picture, he stepped off a 4 inch step to say hello and promptly fell directly on his face. No harm was done of course, but it reminded us of what not to do tonight as we celebrate.

Anyway, please join me in wishing Sachi a happy (and fall free) 30th, far from home!

Happy Birthday Sachi, (and Lee) even if you are half as productive this decade as your 20's, you be ruling the world by 40.

Happy Birthday to you. Since I just turned 40 in June, I have to tell you that the 30's are really great! Enjoy it! I haven't been able to read your blog in about a month as we just moved to a new home. So I have a lot of posts to catch up on, but I am excited to see so many pictures! I look forward to spending some time this evening reading all of your fun experiences!

Happy Birthday and welcome to your 30's. Chris Pirillo turned 33 on the 26th so you're in good company. I'll join Lee and Chris in the 33 club in August.

Hey, happy birthday, Sachi! Hope you'd find your birthday meaningful, fresh, and unforgetable in Hanoi as well :-)

It means a bunch to me to hear from folks when it has been so long since we've been home. I've heard from several people who say the 30's are the best - of course they were in their 30's at the time. I'm looking forward to it! Zach - the puppy got right back up to fall again on the next step...I think it's a good sign for all of us after birthday celebrations.
