  1. I love this strategy—makes me want to emulate in October when I turn 34 :).
    Hey, maybe I'll slice today…

    (BTW: What about a chocolate dessert???) 😉

  2. Happy birthday and all the days after! Your choice of words is clearly carefully chosen and reflects who you are today. I feel like I have learned so much about you that is reflected in this slice: how important your family is to you and the connections you make with other people, your interest in the world beyond your local community, that you value being healthy, that you are a humble, giving, person who is oh so deserving of another year filled with joy and blessings beyond belief!

  3. What a fun, powerful slice! I also loved the photo with the black and white except for the red watermelon. Amazing all around!
