Since birthdays often don’t often involve the gathering of friends and family like Christmas or Thanksgiving (because who has time for that??), the best thing about them is the presents. And the Facebook messages are nice too.
Yesterday, I turned 30. (Insert sands of time in an hour glass metaphor here.) I celebrated with Will last night, and boy did I clean up!
Will was smart enough to stop by my favorite store and got me some Jonathan Adler bottle stoppers and a cool “wine breather” that decants wine – instantly!
Both gifts were very thoughtful because I have been known to enjoy a glass of wine every
day now and then. Also, I was just complaining a few weeks ago that we didn’t have any good bottle stoppers (look at Will taking mental notes!), and I like to “decant” my wine before drinking it (basically I just pour it in a glass and let it sit for awhile) because two-buck Chuck from Trader Joe’s actually does taste better that way.
We continued the celebration of my awesome life by drinking sparkling wine (natch) and going out to dinner at Riccardo Trattoria, which was delicious (just ask Gwyneth)!
I even tried curling my hair for the occasion and was marginally successful.
All in all, a great 30th birthday! Thanks to everyone who made me feel special!
