My birthday may have fallen on a short day, but the only thing it was short of was time. Thanks to my wonderful husband, I had a fantastic birthday weekend.
I stayed at work late on Friday to say goodbye to the woman who hired me and until Friday was my supervisor. She has moved on to new opportunities and created a few of them for me as well. Brad ended up ordering Chinese for me to pick up on the way home for dinner.
When I got home, there were roses waiting for me and Stella Artois in the fridge. Stella + sesame chicken + the couch made for a nice low-key evening.
Being the horrible birthday girl that I am, I had planned to run errands on Saturday. Brad had other plans. He treated me to breakfast and let me squeeze in on errand before treating me to a surprise afternoon.
I was instructed to dress nicely and wear comfortable shoes. Our afternoon birthday adventure included three official stops and a Starbucks break.
Stop #1: Orchid Mania at the Cleveland Botanical Garden
Stop #2: Dinner at L’Albatros
Stop #3: Dessert at Coquette Patisserie
The entire adventure took place in University Circle, a very walkable neighborhood that also offered excellent access to EV charging for the Volt.
And now to the picture part of the story:
My mom and her husband came to visit on my birthday and we had a nice afternoon.
How was your weekend?
