Thirty-One and Still a Nerdy One…

Today is my 31st birthday!  Whoop whoop! I know some women hate turning another year older.  And admitting their real age.  But honestly, I have no issues with it.  I am who I am.  We can't stop Father Time, so we might as well party on with him! Though, I'll admit...
