I always laughed a little bit about how my grandma doesn’t have a birthday. She has a birthday week. There wasn’t one big family celebration. She had something up every day, for a whole week, every year for her birthday. She is a lady who loves to go out to eat, so she was taken out to eat every day for the whole week. But she was onto something! I’ve been celebrating since Friday and while my official birthday was yesterday, I still feel like I’m celebrating today, as we’ll be heading out to the lake any minute now. Sooo looking forward to it!
I spent yesterday evening with my parents, my husband, my son, and a couple close family friends. We chatted, and ate a crazy amount of food. Barbecued chicken and farmer sausage, with whipped potatoes, corn on the cob, and a fabulous green bean dish with mushroom sauce and crunchy onions. And cake, of course. Actually got all the candles out this year!
After such an evening of delicious food and company, I’m excited to pile into my tiny car which is now crammed, and spend the next 2-ish hours driving to the lake, eating my ham sandwich and nectarine. Why does food that was boring in a high school lunch taste so much better on the way to the lake? Who knows. But its even better when accompanied by…
