Happy Birthday, Shannon <3


We have a LOT to celebrate today, what with the US Supreme Court striking down both the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8 which paves the way for the expansion of marriage equality in this country, but a little closer to home … we have something else to celebrate today. Our very own Shannon is celebrating her BIRTHDAY TODAY! I know that I can count on ALL Y’ALL to join me in wishing Shannon a very happy birthday today and all y’all will send her all the BIRTHDAY LURVE you can muster for our dear Shannon today.

I’m quite certain Shannon is enjoying her day in the happy company of her beautiful sons (prolly with Kanye West’s Yeezy album playing in the background), hopefully finding some time for some well-deserved rest and relaxation. Shannon has been such a wonderful addition to the blog that I honestly thank my lucky stars each and every day that I get to work with her. There is no question that she has been a huge source of support for me, personally, and her impact on Pink is the New Blog has been monumental. I never dreamed I would find a writing partner that so gets what I’m all about and is able to interact with readers as successfully as she does on a daily basis. Having had the pleasure of getting to spend time hanging out with her, I can assure you all that she is even cooler and more fun than you might imagine. I just love Shannon so much and I hope that she has the best birthday ever today. Please send her all the lurve you can muster on her special day. Happy Birthday, Shannon … we all love you very, very much!!!
