Happy diaversary...and many many more.

(And #15? The ocean? Love.)

Renata said...

It feels weird saying "happy" diaversary, when speaking about a disease...but then you have pointed out you have so many things to celebrate. Wishing you many smiles, lots of laughter, internal comfort and many many many more years!

Good for you!
And, thanks for being a great encouragement to the rest of us.

And GLEE is totally a reason for living ;)

Kelly - Great way to celebrate by counting off each thing you enjoy in life - that's what counts the most! Can't imagine some of the diabetics out there with over 50+ years of the D - what their list would look like (mine would include The Partridge Family ). Remember, we're all living longer with diabetes with all the advancements that have been made (good bye glass syringes and needles that are sharpend on a stone - ugh - me Cave Woman) - but still will be great when we FIND A CURE!!!

Happy Diaversary, K2! That's a fantastic list to keep growing.

George said...

You might want to add a 1.5 or something because I think Tasty Cakes would be on there.

Love you heaps!! Happy 33rd year of kicking diabetes in the neck!

Penny said...

Here's to 33 more glorious, kicking-ass years of rockin' the D Kelly. You are a wondrous woman who is very loved!

Happy 33! # 32 is my fav- although it's really hard to choose just one! Hope it was a stellar day!

Sara said...

Great list! Great reason to celebrate! Here's to 33 more (too cynical to say 33 more unless a cure comes first)!

Kim said...

I think you forgot one... 34. I'm awesome.

Ah well, I guess you can save that one for next year. ;-) Congrats!!

Karen said...
