I said that all I wanted for my birthday was a blue sky. As it turns out, I got that and a whole lot more. This weekend has been an emotional roller coaster with no less than tears, smiles, hugs, tons of fun and more love than I could ever have imagined. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday. Thanks so much to everybody for the sweet birthday messages, comments and e-mails. Plus an extra special thanks to a couple of my fabulous friends who wrote the kindest words about me on their blogs today and melted my heart. Love-love.
Last night, some of the girls and I put on our party shoes and hit up The Italian Kitchen for some fine eats and lots of wine. It was a fantastic evening among some the most stellar friends that any chica could ask for.
Today, the actual birthday, is also Father's Day, so the fam made a trip into the city to celebrate the two occasions in the sunshine. We walked around, spent some time at the beach and enjoyed a most delicious meal at Irashai. I highly recommend this spot and must tell you that the Summer Roll is absolutely to die for. I'm quite sure it's the best roll that I've ever eaten in my entire life. Ever. Amazing.
Being that I'm mildly hungover, completely beat, and have to be up far earlier than anyone should ever have to be up in the morning to catch a plane tomorrow, I best be getting my butt to bed.
Good night, and thanks again for all the birthday love. I'm one lucky girl.
**Update: Super big thanks to Raul as well, for this. I couldn't be more touched.
