first off, i want to thank all of you for the wonderful birthday wishes. i had a truly magical week, and it was so nice to hear from so many of you. we had a whirlwind of a week. chris and i were both raised by parents who went all out for birthdays, and we decided to keep up the tradition. so basically, we celebrate everyone's birthdays for the whole week. mine was spent seeing a fun play, shopping a ton, eating loads of good pizza with the family and friends, drinking good wine, relaxing, and finally, getting a new tattoo.
i was telling chris on saturday that my birthday is the one day of the year that i don't feel guilty about spending money. of course, it's not the only day of the year that i spend money, but i give myself that one day to do what i want and not feel bad about what it costs (within reason). hence the shopping, pizza, wine, and tattoo.
not that money is what makes the birthday, because the little floral arrangement that the kids and chris made for me out of yarn and pipe cleaner was by far my favorite gift of the whole week. and sharing four decadent desserts with the three people i adore most was the best memory of the week.
chris informed me yesterday that even though birthday week is over, he will allow us to celebrate birthday month, so i guess i have a few more days left!! shopping anyone?
