my 31st birthday was just last week, july 21st. it started like any other day...baby up early. playtime. hot as heck (car registered 111) around here so we stayed inside. hung out with a neighborhood friend. then mike came home with the most fabulous and tasty peach blackberry pie.
the next night we went to dinner at a new local restaurant. my friend rachel came to babysit our little man for a few hours so we could steal away alone. a bottle of great wine and some fancier clothes. fried goat cheese, strip steak and red velvet cake for me. tuna tartare, porterhouse steak and apple bourbon bread pudding for mike. rachel sent pictures of quinn and their time together, knowing it would be most welcome. back home in time for quinn's bedtime. it was a great night.
on saturday morning, mike treated me to a massage at the most wonderful aveda spa. i left feeling so refreshed and peaceful. next up was the neighborhood pool with quinn. he loved having mike there, showed off the whole time, and is seriously part-fish. he waded in the water and tried walking back and forth between us, looking like a drunken sailor.
what a fabulous birthday it was.
