what a great birthday.
punkin picking was successful; i'm the proud owner of two wonderfully round and fat punkins that are excited to become jack-o-lanterns. i love the autumn. i made sure to be up bright and early both days this weekend so that i could drink in the early-morning sunshine (sunshine's at it's freshest in the early morning, you see), not to mention so that i could enjoy the most of my weekend. sleeping in is nice and all, but getting up early gives you longer days... which defaults to longer weekends.
by the end of sunday, i felt like i'd had a week off of work. exhausted, stuffed to the brim with birthday fajitas and tiramisu, a small arsenal of books to read (in defense of food from christian and little cakes from the whimsical bakehouse from jess), a fantastic new leather bag that i've been craving for months now (thanks mike!) and a slew of other oh-so-kind gifts, i went home happy with a brain full of new memories and a camera full of new pictures.
that's my kind of weekend.
