Today is my birthday, but I’ve really been celebrating all weekend.
On Friday, some of my favorite people came over and played board games. We, of course, played my favorite game of all time – Balderdash. But I learned two new (and AWESOME) games, too: Settlers of Catan and another that I can’t remember the name of that’s sort of like a tetris battle.
Yesterday, a friend took me to my favorite breakfast restaurant and I ate delicious eggs Benedict and pancakes and was glad for the 40 minute walk home afterwards. Tonight, a friend I don’t get to spend nearly enough time with is taking me out for Thai food or sushi – I couldn’t decide so he has to.
Of course, the presents have been lovely. Anna gave me a coffee cup that looks like a beaker and makes the science nerd in me very excited and Jane got me a lovely soup ladle, which I’ve wanted for a long time and am so happy about.
I’ve also received so many wonderful notes from people I love. All in all, 24 is one of my best birthdays yet!
