My birthday was last Thursday and it was a wonderful day filled with a lot of celebrating. My family loves to go all out for birthdays, and this one was no exception!
We went out for a late breakfast at one of my favorite restaurants and just as I prepared to take the last bite of my omelette, I heard the clapping and singing begin. Soon, I was surrounded by at least eight people wishing me a happy birthday. Then, after being serenaded, I was presented with a dish of ice cream topped with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and maraschino cherries. Now I had just consumed an omelette and hash browns, but I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it), so I bravely picked up a spoon and started in on the treat. The ice cream was pure perfection and it didn’t seem to matter that I’d just eaten breakfast. I enjoyed every bite and did manage to share a few (okay, maybe just one or two) bites with my family:)
