No, I don’t mean Christmas. I mean February!! Full on winter weather, Groundhog Day, Valentines Day & even better…my birthday! It sounds terrible I’m sure but I promise I’m not one of those people who requires a week of celebration, fancy dates, big parties or any of that. In fact as long as there’s something a little sweet I didn’t need to make myself then it’s perfect.
Last year was a little tricky. Pittsburgh was in the middle of a blizzard so I while J. and I were completely snowed in. And while it had it’s moments it had been a couple days already and we were running out of groceries had a new puppy trapped with us who didn’t know what to do with several feet of snow. We ate cheese and crackers for dinner and I baked myself birthday pretzels. This year will hopefully be better.
And since we kept Christmas a bit on the modest side this year, I have a few things still hanging out on my wish list that I thought I’d share.
J. has given me a necklace for almost every major holiday since we’ve been together. Unfortunately I always manage to break them so I have several awaiting repair. Maybe I could wear one of these while I’m fixing the others.
And finally – one of the few major things left that my kitchen is missing – a dutch oven
Regardless of whether there’s any presents or dinner or even *gasp* cake – I’m sure it’s going to be a great birthday and and even better year.
