Happy Birthday to ME!

Since graduating college in 2008, I’ve been lucky that our annual Drake girls’ weekend has always fallen over my birthday weekend:


 Vegas 2009 – 24th Birthday

 Scottsdale 2010 – 25th Birthday

But this year we moved girls weekend to Memorial Day weekend so I was planning to do nothing… CHANGE OF PLANS. I participated in the Lincoln Park S. Fields 16” Co-ed Recreational Softball League Tournament.  Play until you lose. We lost the first game and headed to the bar. NBD — I’d call that a win.

So in honor of all things September – Labor Day, the sapphire, the official start of autumn and collegiate/NFL football, the iconic Earth, Wind & Fire song and National Grandparents Day – Happy Birthday to me and to some of my favorite September birthdays:

Mike Tolf – Sept 4

Uncle Tom – Sept 5

Clayton Lesniak – Sept 6

Caroline Lesniak – Sept 8

Natalie Holmes – Sept 9

Todd Reese – Sept 10

Jillian Roberson – Sept 10

Matt Brother– Sept 13

Brooke Archibald – Sept 18

Aunt Sandy – Sept 20

Brent Reese – Sept 29

Aunt Deb – Sept 29



About thetwentysixthyear

September 6, 2011: I turn twenty-six years old. I live and work in downtown Chicago and really can't complain about too much -- great family, great friends, great life. So this is my personal blog. Experiencing and living my twenty-sixth year. I have no idea what to expect or where I'll be one year from now ... but one thing is certain: I will enjoy the ride.

  1. We miss you SO much, Kate! Natalie thanks you for the nod to her September birthday… she turned 6! (yikes!) I’m loving reading your blog and learning so much about you I didn’t know. This also makes it much easier for me to continue to live my life vicariously through you. 🙂 We send you lots of love and hugs and best wishes for your 26th year.
