this past weekend we celebrated my birthday - as you can see, lots of sweets were involved. my last birthday before the big 3-0. whew. but i think my last year in my 20's will be a good one. i mean, look at all the donuts i started it with! how could it not be, ya know? since it was my birthday weekend i got to do many of my favorite things - and yes, as brian has discovered, i've decided to just declare the whole week my birthday week. it doesn't really change much, it's just when i decide not to do a load of laundry i justify it with being my birthday week instead of being tired. see, not so much of a change. but this weekend brought lots of good food, and relaxing, and having friends over for brunch - which involved lots of champagne and cake and donuts and it was good. i hope you all had wonderful weekends as well - the august weather has really been tops here in nyc, so i hope it's the same where you are. and please, by all means, enjoy my birthday week - the laundry can wait.
