Things to Celebrate
It’s Patti LaBelle and Priscilla Preseley’s birthdays. Sounds like we have a good soundtrack for the day.
It’s National Escargot Day. I don’t know if I want to participate, but let me know if you do.
My best friend from elementary school is also celebrating her birthday today. Shout out to Lizzie Bee a.k.a. Liz Cooney. The best friend a girl could ask for when growing up.
It may be the best day. It’s Tiara Day. You can wear a bejeweled crown and nobody can tell you not to. If only I had one in my closet.
