Best birthday-party-not-actually-on-my-birthday evar!
Nina brought a sticker for my computer and a card that made me cry. Holly made tex-mex tacos. Loreen made the best cupcakes ever and mine had a candle in it.
They sang three different happy birthday songs to me, including (most appropriately):
May the candles on your cake
Burn like cities in your wake.
Dancing didn’t quite manifest, but we had music and food & wine and five conversations spread through three rooms. The kids played upstairs and occasionally came tearing through the house. We played games and talked and laughed and laughed and laughed.
Going to bed tired and happy.
