*afterthought: catherine’s birthday

I love celebrating my birthday. It’s not just my birthday; June turns into my birthday month! Birthday month was a little more evident this year given the compression of recent events. My best friend got married the day before my birthday. My birthday fell on Father’s Day. My sister, brother-in-law, and the baby came up from LA for the week. I was a little miffed that my actual birthday was overshadowed this year.

I did throw a birthday / housewarming party at my place yesterday night–less than one week after my June 18th birthday. It was the first time I had ever invited anyone over since I bought it more than a year ago. I enjoyed seeing my various circle of friends (high school, college, and work) altogether in my home. Thanks to all who showed up.

And presents…I love presents! Lots of cookbooks and cooking utensils. Thanks people. I think I get the point!

I will learn to cook. Cooking is good.

More birthday celebrations to come. Birthday month is still going strong. Dinner with co-workers tomorrow. Drinks with a friend the next night.

Then a succession of departures and trips to the airport. My boyfriend leaves for Amsterdam Thursday morning. That night, I’m picking Daniel and Chavonta up from their honeymoon trip to Hawaii. Joy leaves for Paris on Friday for a month. Marc leaves for Barcelona on Saturday for a month.

Three Departures and a Wedding. Rehearsal and dinner on Friday. Steph gets married on Saturday, July 1st. Two best friends married within two weeks of each other. With my birthday month, the summer is off to a great start!
