wednesday was my birthday and although i didn't do anything super fancy (i'm only 29 anyway), i had a thoroughly fantastic one.

for one, the weather was gorgeous - and it happened to fall on my customary day off!
wes made dinner plans so while i was waiting all day at home, i did a whole lot of stuff i wouldn't normally do because i'd feel guilty spending so much time doing it!  my dilemma was, it IS my birthday and i want to make it different somehow, so...i finished off season 2 of downton abbey - read a ton, almost entirely finished my bonhoeffer book (trying to finish it before we go to europe - don't want to lug it around!), did my nails and made myself a "fancy" lunch (sauteed veggies, rice, beans and tortilla chips) - and it dawned on me how time flies!!


anyway, wes took me out to tuli bistro and then we met up with some buddies for drinks.

today i'm just enjoying the last rounds of the seasonal fruit - as much as i love the fall, it's always sad to see the really delicious ones go for several months. especially peaches.

been reading up on some of the places in france...excited to see the centre pompidou - it's like a modern/contemporary art museum/center, but the building is built inside out! (almost more excited for that than for the louvre!).  around there is also picasso's museum :) and hopefully hit up a consignment shop or two....

have a good one! 


  1. That cute is soo cute

  2. Happy LATE birthday! sounds like it was a good one. :)

  3. Love the pix of the kitty in the jeans ;) Hope you are having a good time in Europe. I am trying to survive Sandy! The photos in the previous post are great. I just bought the Cannon Rebel T3i and I can't wait to start using it!
