My birthday was one of those perfect days where nothing really significant happens, but they just feel lighter. I could relax a bit more. I got some work done, but gave myself permission to catch up on a few new shows as well. The day was mine.
Adam came home early with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and we headed off to lunch at our favorite burger place. That meal sat in my belly for a long time, but calories don’t count on my birthday. I deemed it and it is so! After lunch, we swung back home and picked up Nolabird. We drove out to Latta Plantation Nature Preserve to walk the trails and let Nola splash around in the lake. A simple activity, but it was me and my favorites hanging out and and enjoying absolutely perfect weather.
Nola was scared of water up until a few weeks ago when we spent an hour in training, teaching her to get into a doggie pool and it has paid off. She now wades in a bit, but is still cautious not to go in too far. I think once we’re in the lake with her, she’ll be brave enough to get in a little more.
Once we left the park, we went home to clean up and relax a bit. We picked up some Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee to fuel the last few hours of my birthday and went shopping to no avail, but had fun trying anyway. We decided to just head home to have a few hours to eat dinner and relax, which we did. We capped off my birthday with cupcakes and a simple birthday song. Like I said, calories do NOT count on birthdays. True story.
It was the perfect day. Nothing crazy or out-of-the-ordinary, but perfect in it’s own way and I loved every minute of it.
