I had a lovely 35th birthday. Jake, my husband was in Vancouver for work, so he arranged my mom to come out and stay with me for the weekend. He informed me of this surprise just in time too. It was a challenging day both with my girls and with some personal reflection. Another year older has never bothered me. I rather enjoyed it. But as life prevails this number has been a difficult one. Two days before the celebrated day, Jake’s phone call came and lifted my spirits. I made cheesy Cauliflower soup.http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Cauliflower-Cheese-Soup/ While I was getting a massage at La Costa Resort,http://www.lacosta.com/ Nana and the girls made these delicious red velvet cupcakes. The gifts on the table were more than generous. Some dear friends came in to San Diego. They were here to celebrate a birthday as well and to run in a marathon. http://womenshalf.competitor.com/sandiego. They took this pic of us at Torrey Pines State Reserve. http://www.torreypine.org/
It was wonderful!
PS. I should also give a shout-out to family and friends who wished me happy birthday by card, facebook, phone, and text. It meant a lot to me. This will be an important year for me.
