There is no better birthday present in the world than these two! And being the lucky girl that I am, my wonderful husband also made me that adorable little baking class gift certificate up there so now I can go and learn some new skills at an incredible school in Santa Monica. Remember when I was hinting around about how cool that would be?
I've been meaning to tell you about what we did for my birthday, but with the snowy getaway, New Year celebrations, cleaning, organizing, redecorating, prepping for our garage sale and general getting-back-into-the-swing over here, I just haven't had the chance to get my fingers on the keyboard. My happy day started with a birthday banner and prezzies, and then out for a very special and very delicious feast of a breakfast at FarmShop. It was so cold, so gloomy, and so rainy (just the way I like it, really.) After our meal, we did some window shopping/browsing and headed home to get ready for our movie. Ryan and I had a date and the rare treat of sitting in a theater. We saw Hyde Park on Hudson and I studied every inch of the clothing and set design like I was going to be tested later. What a breathtakingly beautiful movie, and a great story with outstanding performances to boot. After our movie we had mac and cheese and brussels sprouts at City Tavern and headed over to the new restaurant in town for an after dinner drink. We ended the night with a bite of my tiny cake and a wish. It was a perfect day in every way.
