"If this is what 40 looks like, bring it on baby." —Melanie Notkin (at her 40th birthday party)
To the savviest Savvy Auntie: For following your dreams and launching a successful media empire during some very tough times, for involving your community every step of the way, for providing a place where PANKs can come together to share ideas and gush, for being a positive presence both online and off, for showing everyone what a force a 40-year-old woman can be, we raise our glasses of champagne to you. In the immortal words of LL Cool J, Melanie Notkin is doin' it very well. Clink!
