My birthday yesterday was the most low-key it has ever been, and I didn’t mind it one bit. After finishing up my latest read, I enjoyed a lovely breakfast prepared by Ethan and stayed in my pajamas for much longer than I ever do. The afternoon, though blustery, was spent perusing antique shops downtown with my mom, and we had an early dinner at The Bar (get the beer-battered onion rings!). Then we returned to my parents’ house for presents and cake. I’m looking forward to celebrating my 26th again this weekend with my sister, brother-in-law, our aunts and uncle.
