Brooke's 40th Birthday

Blue LagoonWith Rowan
In Blue Lagoon (1980) and this year with daughter, Rowan

I don't know why I remember these things (celebrity birthdays) — when I was in high school I always wished I was Brooke Shields. Or at least Brooke Shields LIKE. But damn if I didn't overpluck my eyebrows and they never grew back. Ever. To this day.

Anyway, I grew up with Brooke Shields... many, many ups and weird (Agassi) and awful (baby depression) downs, very human to say the least. It doesn't depress me that she's 40... it just reminds me to look back once in awhile and appreciate today. Happy Birthday, Brooke!
