I love birthdays, yours, mine, his, hers. I love shopping for gifts, and making a card, and most of all getting together with that special someone to celebrate them.
And this year I came down with a nasty virus right before my birthday, so my family postponed our get-together until we could all be together- here is a little taste of my birthday:
2013- the cake: The cake bakers: Lunch with my family at one of my favorite Eugene restaurants, Noli:Me, the one who usually takes all the photos, ready to have the camera back (yet secretly happy to have a photo of me at lunch):Salad,shared with my mom:
"Pirate Pasta", aka penne, with cheese for Emma:
Spaghetti with extra meatballs for Ben:
Minestrone soup with a grilled veggie sandwich for me:
Pasta with seafood for my brother Joe:
Carbonara Pasta for Dave: dessert at home...The best kind of birthday, filled with really delicious food, lots of laughter, and people I love. Oh, and cake, of course.
Here's to year 43!
