Dr. Draw‘s birthday party extraordinaire!

On my way home from the birthday, I met Daniel Lioneye and Turisas outside their concert at the Phoenix. We had a 2am snowball fight and took some photos. Helsinki metal isn’t my thing but I was starstruck all the same!

Oh, and yesterday, the Foo Fighters played a concert for us at lunch (courtesy Edge 102.1)

Every day I am thankful for my full life and all who are in it. 31 was a year full of challenges and rewards. 32 comes with more blog posts! A resolution.
