Thirty Six

Yesterday, January 14, was my thirty-sixth birthday. Putting aside the utter absurdity of the fact that I’m thirty six, I’ve had a really wonderful weekend. Here are some highlights:

Tess and EJ came over for dinner. They surprised me with cards, presents, and an incredible gluten free chocolate cake from Noe Valley Bakery. (Their cakes are amazing, by the way; you should totally get one.)

Dinner was Japanese style grilled chicken, grilled onions, and green beans. Photo credit Erin "EJ" O'Connor.
Seriously look at this cake.

Both my cats, Rowan and Ash, greeted me Sunday morning and hung around for some good snuggles.

I went to Kabuki Springs in Japantown, where I had a massage and a couple hours’ soak in the baths. 🧖🏻‍♀️ I haven’t had a massage in quite a long time and it was great to unwind for a while.

Tess and I spent the night at the Fairmont Hotel, and had dinner at the Laurel Court.

So much credit goes to Tess, who booked all the things and made the whole weekend happen. She took such good care of me, and I feel very loved.

A number of friends and family also reached out to wish me happy birthday. I’m deeply grateful for all of your birthday wishes, and for taking the time connect. <3
