Happy birthday, Kristen!

Today is Kristen’s 26th birthday! She’s planning a very elaborate 5-course meal for some of her favorite people this weekend (she is quite the top in the kitchen, remember) and I get to play bartender, so I spent some time researching the appropriate wine pairings. The signature cocktail of the evening will be a dirty slut birthday girl gimlet. (It was a dirty dirty dirty martini, but since the cocktail hour is coming after dinner and before dessert, we decided the extra-spicy olives and pickles she likes in her martinis wouldn’t go that well with the almond birthday cake with sherry-lemon buttercream icing. So, gimlet. I’ll share the recipe if it turns out perfectly.)

I’ve got some secret plans for the weekend, too, which definitely includes birthday spankings, gifts, and a few other things …

Happy birthday, baby. I’m so glad I get to celebrate this day with you, and so glad you’re with me. I’ve never had it so good, it just keeps building and building, getting better and better – I know how lucky I am, and I am so grateful. Hope this day is joyous in every way.

Wish her a happy birthday for me, willya? She is a huge part of why the smut writing has been so good lately, after all …

    Happy Birthday Kristen!!

    You don’t need wishes for a sexy birthday, it sounds like you’re already there. Have a great birthday dinner, and I want to see pics of the flowers!

  19. With a birthday date that is within 24 hours of the Goddess of all things Sparkley and Fabulous (Cher, obviously) and with the way Sin goes on and on and on and on… and on about you – I am quite certain, without personal proof (yet) that you are with out a doubt quite a fabulous lady. I very much look forward to meeting you. Until then, happiest birthday to you, Miss Kristen!

    Happy Birthday Beautiful Lady!!!


    A femme stranger/voyeur who knows an astonishing amount about your sex life! (It's cool, I date a famous butch top too. If the winds of the small queer world ever blow us together I will buy you a spicy cocktail and we can swap war stories.)

    For what it's worth – I'm awfully glad the rest of us keep getting to read about you – you add a nice touch to the place.

    I hope the coming year brings you everything you need, most of the things you want and the chance to dream even bigger for the year after. xoxoxo
