Celebration

Birthday Day, Birthday Week and Birthday Month came and went. I don’t think I have ever (for as long as I can remember) celebrated my birthday for A. such long period of time or B. so intensely.

Michelle made a good point during Birthday Week – she said: Hay ciertos cumpleaños que hay que celebrar en etapas!! Which means: There are certain birthdays that have to be celebrated in stages!! And that is exactly how I finally welcomed this birthday – in stages. I say “finally welcomed” because for a while I was very disturbed about turning 30. Finally I came to terms with the fact that I’m old (joke!).

From Erik’s slip and slide party early in September (it was his party, but I celebrated the beginning of Birthday Month), to a dance party co-celebration with Jessie a week later at Kerrie’s, to a beautiful birthday dinner surprise the night before my birthday (which involved a trip to Athens for a casual night dedicated to lots of good food, good wine, good conversation, lots of laughter and friendship), to being attacked by silly string at work, to casual baked ziti and movie night during Birthday Week. Followed by family celebrating time with Juan Ma and Michelle that involved outdoor dining (yeah!!) the weekend after Birthday Day. Can’t forget to mention the several calls from my mom all throughout Birthday Week!

Thanks to all my loved ones (I just had to throw that in!) who made turning 30 more bearable.

Believe it or not, this is the only decent picture I have for Birthday Month:
