Dear America,

Happy Birthday!

I hope this year is filled with friendship, laughter, and beautiful memories.

I'd also like to let you know that I'm thrilled you have a costume party every year! I LOVE dressing up. Plus your go-to colors are ideal.

I'd also like to thank you for falling on a Friday this year and for the subsequent three-day weekend. I am spending your birthday at Seascape in Aptos soaking up some sun and relishing in quality time with friends.

Thanks again,
