2024 is the Year I am Soaking Up The Birthday Love

I just had a birthday...and no, I am not telling you how old I am, but I can officially say that I was around when the Walkman was invented.  It was awesome then but I really love my iPhone today.  #NeverGoingBack

Birthdays aren't always easy for me, and I haven't always been a fan of adding that extra year, but I decided that 2024 was going to be the year where I just soak up the birthday love.  I had listeners from around the country wish me Happy Birthday.

My alma mater, Iowa State University, sent me a special birthday greeting.  My financial planner and Delta Air Lines sent me a birthday wish.  And, I found a whole lot of freebies!
