I thought it was going to be a low-key birthday weekend of quiet, rest, and solitude with me, Jeffrey and the dogs.
Much to my pleasant surprise, this guy came to celebrate my birthday with us:
I haven’t seen him since early March and have missed him horribly. These guys (along with many others) have made my birthday incredible, even in isolation:
I love these guys with all my heart, and they gave me a birthday to remember!
We did puzzles:
We did Mad Libs:
We ate (Gluten Free) donuts:
We played Skip-Bo:
I got balloons delivered by my Mom and Sister and a “Happy Birthday” serenade from the car:
There were gifts and decorations:
We watched Gerald perform:
We had cocktails:
My dogs were an essential part of the weekend as well (of course):
Texts, emails, phone calls, and FaceTimes from so many people made my heart swell. If I didn’t know better, I’d thing I was dying.
Such an incredible weekend. And that it was all a total surprise made it 300% better.
Just goes to show that the right people can make even a lockdown birthday feel like a fabulous celebration – never underestimate the people you love (and who love you back!)
I’m feeling the love, folks.
Happy Birthday to me.
