…From my 29th birthday.
I want to remember the Edible Arrangements delivery in a Hello Kitty vase. It was an inside joke, I think? I don’t really have inside jokes. But this certainly would have counted as one if any of my coworkers asked about it.
I want to remember how beautiful it was out in my car in the morning, when I took a break from work and read and wrote some words and sat in the sunshine.
I want to remember that this photo with this ridiculous face was probably my favorite one from the day.
I want to remember that over lunch at our favorite pizzeria, I asked P. what he wished for me for my birthday. He said, “That you think less and laugh more.”
I want to remember my parents calling me at 8:09 AM to sing me happy birthday the minute I was born, and me surprising them 20 seconds after we hung up by pulling into their driveway.
I want to remember that I was surprised with a beautiful little bouquet of flowers from my parents, and with a night at a swanky hotel & spa later this month with P. It will come after our big move and after we’ve been in our apartment for a couple of weeks. It will be the perfect time to de-stress.
