Mack Commandeers the Blog: Another Birthday Post

27. You might forget that’s the actual number, but it’s how many years you’ve been on this planet now. It’s one of those off-number birthdays that sometimes you don’t feel like celebrating– where you may not feel very special, or that any big celebration needs to be made of it. So maybe the NUMBER 27 isn’t worth celebrating. But you know what? YOU are.

You’re incredible– you’re hilarious, talented, beautiful, loving, and my BEST FRIEND. You’re considerate and kind, a mentor to total strangers, a source of entertainment for the masses… I’d sit around and celebrate you EVERY day, but today I have a special occasion, and I hope you feel ridiculously loved today. I hope the kids and I can show you how much you mean to us, I hope blog readers come out of the woodwork to tell you how fabulous you are (hint, hint, internet!), and I hope this day can shape up to be exactly the day you’d want it to be.

So while you may not remember whether you’re 27 or 28, I hope that in a few years, you can remember that your twenty-somethings were kindof amazing, and people loved you. Happy birthday, sweetheart!

    Happy birthday hot mama! PS–an important rule for next time you forget your ag: when in doubt, always round down. Same goes with weight and the cost of a cute new dress.

    Happy Birthday Chelsea. I’ve been following you guys for a long time. Your work is inspiring and it’s nice to see that your relationship is also inspiring. I’ve been married to my hubby for 7 years and we work together sometimes. It’s awesome to have your partner in business be your partner in life too. Have a great birthday week.

    I’m sorry, but 27 is important. That’s the next birthday for my eldest and I already thought 1986 was one awesome year. Now, I have another reason to think it was so. 🙂

    When we met y’all I never knew we’d get to live life with you guys and celebrate the big wins and see you grow creatively and become a woman that is comfortable in herself and the work that she creates and yet still take on challenge after challenge and SUCCEED doing it.

    You have been there to capture Bethe and I through some huge chapters and changes in our lives.

    We will cherish the moments that you’ve captured for a lifetime and our children’s children will get to see them thanks to you.

    I hope today that you celebrate the woman that you are, an inspiration to mom’s (err my wife) that starting a business is hard, it’s a risk, but you gotta have the balls to take it head-on and laugh in its face as you run by. Chelsea McGowan #FTW
