today is my birthday and i am twenty seven years old. birthdays are so much more exciting when you are 7, but 27 is going to be a good number. today i went to breakfast with a friend at my most favorite breakfast restaurant, clarettes. so delicious and a great way to start the day! then i went to work (because i am not seven anymore, but instead i am an adult and must work on my birthday). fortunately i have a fantastic job and so i played at work-- i played outside with the kids, i played inside...then i made my most favorite dessert, cupcakes, kindergarten style (hooray for funfetti) and shared with my kids, and then, because i am the teacher, we watched one of my most favorite movies (and also one of my kids favorites)--the cat in the hat--. btw, there is nothing better than being greeted with happy birthdays and hugs by 6 year olds, unless it's eating pizza and ice cream cake with family, your friend sending you flowers, or having the best roomates ever surprise you with a cold stone creamery cake they brought home for you from their day trip to spokane.

p.s. today i wore a flower headband (that i made) in my hair, maybe parts of me are still 7 after all...
