When I was a wee little lass my family had something of a birthday routine for each member of the family including opening presents in the morning, cake, singing and a feeling of specialness. My routine was always to have mom make lasagna. Since I've grown up and moved away I haven't had that routine in the same way.
I was trying to remember the last birthday I spent with my family and I think it may have been my 18th birthday! So, yesterday was quite a treat. We went over to my parent's house in the late afternoon and I opened a few very thoughtful gifts and then we had dinner. My mom pulled out all the stops. She made me a meal of favorites: lasagna with sheese, cantaloupe, baby kosher dill pickles, salad with goddess dressing, bread, black olives and for dessert a tasty vegan cake. What a kind thing for her to do!!! We all played Boggle, but nobody let me win (boo).
Anyway it was lovely and made me feel like I did when I was growing up, loved and appreciated by my family.
How was your day? Do anything interesting this weekend?
