my love had a birthday.

for exactly one day [J] & I were age 25 & 26.

and then

the clock struck midnight & he turned into a pumpkin 27 year old :)

I mentioned yesterday, [J] & I’s birthdays are a day apart. it’s always a week [or two] of constant celebration. last year we went to miami for a long birthday weekend of fun in the sun. and this year, there was no jet-setting, but family [both of our families, which was perfect].

[we went to our favorite movie theater. & drank our way through ‘The Campaign‘].

but ..

the actual day went like this …

[it was a ‘no presents‘ birthday, but I couldn’t resist. so, I made him a scrapbook of our time living in NYC. and filled a bag up with a few of his favorite things].

[one of those favorites: a gigantic mountain dew].

[I chauffeured the birthday boy around].

[the goal was to take [J] to Panera for breakfast, but I could not get him out of the house. when I finally did, we got to Panera & he said “we might as well get lunch, it’s 11AM“. ok love, it’s your birthday].

[then he wanted to go to Dick’s Sporting Goods, where we spent approx. 1.5 hours. (& bought nothing). seriously!!].

[we both got complimentary birthday sandwiches. so it was off to which wich for our actual lunch].

then I begged to go to World Market. [J] was reluctant, but was pleasantly surprised ..

[we’re new fans. & I can’t wait to go back].

[his birthday dinner: Bonefish. scrumptious!!]

[& to happily end the night ..a jack daniels honey shot.].

happy birthday [again] lover.


on a more somber note: today is september 11th. it’s hard to believe that tragic day happened 11 years ago. on the 10 year anniversary, [J] & I were living directly across the Hudson River from where the twin towers once stood, in Jersey City. I took a long stroll along the boardwalk that day and snapped a lot of photos. {see the photos: here}.

never forget.
