Renting a van today and visiting special places from my family's past (swipe 👈🏻). My mom's school (Northwestern University), North Shore and my brother and I in our first Evanston place. Next stop, Kenilworth and Wilmette.
One of my favorite parts of this birthday weekend was the scavenger hunt Charlotte went on for her birthday present. After many stops, we ended up at Tiffany's where she picked out a necklace. Seeing her face when she figured out where we were ultimately headed was 😍 + 🌈.
Scenes from a birthday dinner: steak frites and salad followed by peach blackberry crisp on the porch. Enjoying a homemade treat and lighting birthday candles in ice cream because they started to melt in still-warm crisp. And then sending leftovers off with neighbors and friends. Happy birthday, my beloved! Chicago, here we come.
I thought I was crafty until I saw what that really means--like making two custom oversized birthday piñatas out of recycled Amazon boxes and leftover tissue paper (swipe 👈🏻for side view). Well done, birthday girl-- you amaze me daily.
Birthday breakfast at Pip's. Within seconds of walking in you can see what's happening at every table. Simple arithmetic. # of donuts ordered divided by # in party. How's it going to work out? Pity the fools with too low a 1st number and anything higher than 3 on the second.
