My birthday was yesterday,
and every year I kind of dread it;
thinking of growing older,
birthdays of years past overshadowed
by other things in life.
Yet, I am always pleasantly surprised
by all the love and care my family puts into
making it a special day.
I played with my favorite two year old,
enjoyed a long leisurely coffee date
with some favorite mamas of mine.
Meandered around the fabric store
for a long time,
looking over cottons, linens, and laces.
Despite the feet of snow and frigid temperatures,
I pretended it was spring.
Wearing a new bright blue Breton,
enjoying a dinner with my little family ~
chinook salmon with fresh dill, asparagus, new potatoes,
and a baby lettuces salad,
with (an old family recipe) sponge cake
little strawberries and whipped cream
All my favorite things wrapped up in a day.
