Y’all! I had an event last week and it just completely took over my life! So this is EXTREMELY late, but…I had a lovely birthday. As we’ve started year number two in New York, its hard not to compare to last year, when I was a New York baby. I had just started my job and found out that I shared a birthday with one of my coworkers. So she obviously had seniority over me, a veteran of one week. So our birthday celebration was skewed to her direction, as it should! But it meant red bean, green tea, and lychee flavored ice cream cake. She’s a bit of a free spirit.
After work, some special people joined us for a delicious birthday dinner at my favorite neighborhood restaurant. I broke out the sparkles, because I can!
I usually just have wine and cheese when I go to this restaurant, but we all got to splurge and get pasta. I had the truffle gnocchi. Three of us got it and we all died of sheer happiness.
After dinner it was on to a night of dancing with the whole crew. Another notable difference between last year and this year?
He was out of town last year, so we were both pretty pumped he was around this year. Him making me breakfast and DJ-ing Whitney Houston for me while I got ready made it even better than I had expected! But it was just best to have him with me.
