In spite of being busy at work, Gus managed to pull off a lovely birthday dinner---paella, Iron Horse sparkling, and my favorite cake from Freeport Bakery. Also, for the record, this is Carl Rove's favorite cake as he scarfed the leftover piece from the fridge one year---much to my utter dismay.
|happy 9th birthday to me!|
And the flowers ... oh, the flowers. From my dear friend, Wendy, my parents, and the littlest love of my life, J2.
A wet and windy birthday run with a couple of friends. My co-worker brought me a mocha. And a couple of my girlfriends picked me up and whisked me off to lunch on my birthday.
Rounded out birthday week with another birthday run ... this time with doughnuts, mimosas and champagne cupcakes. Thanks to my sole sisters for celebrating me! 4.0 miles. We did an extra 0.1 for good measure.
Thank you to everyone near and far who celebrated with me this past week. Each and every one of you holds a special place in my heart. I am the luckiest.
