Birthday Girl

So just like that, I'm 28.... Normally, I'd wake up and lavish in the excitement of a birthday, but instead I intend to stay up way past the stroke of midnight, reveling in the surreal surge of attention that occurs approximately once every 365-days. I've tried to play it cool and mostly ignore that my birthday was approaching, and for the first time in about 10 years, avoided planning any sort of party or celebration. Trust me, there's nothing I love more than a good party -or- an excuse to dress up (as my BFFs Jesse & Taylor will be quick to remind me), but something just felt different this year. Of course, now, and after a weekend full of non-celebration celebrations, with a trip to see the Cherry Blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens followed by afternoon tea at Ladurée, I'm looking forward to indulging in all the requisite birthday-goodness. Feel free to send the gluten-free cupcakes in my direction!

  11. Its my birthday tomorrow and l have tried to forget it.
    My son has brought a pressy that l will open tomorrow. I used to live in Scotland and my husband was alive then and he made it special for me but now l am in England and l don't know people. With having a bad accident l can't get out much but l will get the birds outside my window to sing happy birthday to me and a dog from up the road will come with a card. haha
