|An ornate, and delicious, birthday sacher torte in honor of the occassion|
Every so often, including this year, the Super Bowl falls on my birthday. There’s something nice about a Sunday celebration, when the pace is a little slower, and it seems as though the whole weekend is building up to your special day. I am not one of those people who dread the idea of adding another year to my age, but I do sometimes find that there can be a lot of undue pressure to make it extra special. This birthday was memorable not only because it happened on a weekend, but also because everything seemed to fall perfectly into place without much thought. There were many surprises, a much-anticipated dining experience at Tru, and a lot of time doing the things that I love most, like shopping, reading, and catching up with friends and family. Though it was not too long ago that 32 sounded alarmingly old, I have to admit that it’s not such a bad age after all.
