two faced.

when you get to be my age, you kinda stop counting the birthdays. you actually count backwards and start repeating birthdays. but acknowledgement and celebration are important to the minis. i woke up to a handmade card from mini-she. she wants to surprise me all the while asking, "where's the construction paper? where's the tape? what's your favorite kind of cake?
what do you think you'll want to eat for dinner?"
mini-he sees her card and says, "mama, can i draw you
a flower for your birthday? or a heart?" so sweet.
just for these moments, i want to keep having birthdays.

my day continued with fresh baked cookies from a work neighbor and friend, S. they were warm and chewy, just how i like them. then i had a wonderful lunch with good friends, good food, and good conversation at a restaurant i've been wanting to try. thanks, L & S! and when i got back to the office, i was greeted with the prettiest lillies from my friend, D.
if you guys are reading, thanks for the bestest birthday!

bre asked me if i was a taurus. may 21st actually falls on the cusp...most times i'm considered a gemini. once in a while i fall under taurus. guess that makes me a two-faced bull?

 
(bicycle necklace c/o bobby glam)
chocolate peanut butter chip cookies.
blackened ahi chopped salad.
vietnamese coffee flan.
the best-smelling lillies.

  5. Happy Birthday!! That ahi looks so good! and so does the flan!!

    this is a true story, a while back we were out celebrating my friends b-day and she is a taurus, she had a lei on and this guy saw us in the parking lot and he asked are you a bull? she said yes and he said you wanna run with the bulls? this was at the end of the night when the drinks were heavily flowing, so she says okay!! her and this complete stranger started walking to the end of the parking lot and all of a sudden they started making horns on their head with their fingers and began racing down the parking lot!! it was the oddest but most entertaining thing ever!haha!
    maybe you can run with the bulls one day too?!

    love the outfit!!
    cheers!

    1. Ok, I didn't get the memo on that, lol! But that's cool the bulls have some sort of inside thing going on! Wonder what geminis would do?!
