I think there is a typo in your post. 42 — you must mean 32.

Happy birthday!

Haha, no, but thank you! 42 it is!

Happy Birthday, Cate! Oh, to be 42 again! The older I get, the younger it sounds. ;) The photos are great. I really liked the last one. I love it when a company uses correct grammar. I guess I’m just picky, but the misuse of “good” and “well” drives me crazy.
