My birthday was earlier last week and I had planned ahead and worked some extra hours in advance so that I was able to take Monday off. It was a beautiful day and I started out with some coffee and birthday cake (cherry crumble cake – yum!).
As you know, I am a twin and therefore my sister had her birthday, too. Usually we try to skype, so that I can participate in the birthday shenanigans that are usually going on with the rest of the family at her place, but the Internet wasn’t working and so a phone call had to do. Bummer. It might be hard to understand, but it was hard to not ‘see’ (let alone celebrate without) my sister.
I still had a great day, because I got quite some birthday mail this week (thank you so much for sending cards and packages!) and many birthday wishes via Facebook, Twitter and texts.
J and I went out for happy hour later (I had not one, but two cocktails. Who am I?), an appetizer plate …
and then I decided on sushi for dinner later. I recognize a theme here, because I think I picked sushi for my birthday dinner a couple of years in a row now!
Thanks again to everyone who made my birthday extra-special. ♥
