Itâ€™s time for my annual joke: every queen should have two birthdays. Today is my second one of the year, because I legally became Carrie two years ago.
It feels much longer than two years, and sometimes I feel like this.
But more often, I feel blessed. This isnâ€™t an easy road to walk but life is good. Iâ€™m happy. And thatâ€™s largely because of the people I spend my time with.
I feel blessed to know so many wonderful, beautiful, kind and hilarious humans, many of whom I didnâ€™t know before I became me. They have made me feel happy, made me feel safe, and made me shoot expensive gin out of my nose.
I hope they, and you, have a very happy and joyful 2020 when it comes.
As for me, Iâ€™m going to the pub soon. After all, it is my birthday.
