I celebrated a milestone birthday.
For months I was planning a trip to NYC. You know, gather some of my (our) favorite peeps; hang out, eat, drink and celebrate. I was thinking, "We're back on the East Coast so we'll make it a reunion, too!"
But as the weeks got closer to the big day, I decided I wanted cozy, comfortable, easy, small.
So instead of the big getaway weekend or par-tay that supposedly women of my generation are doing (whatever that means), I decided to:
Celebrate online via Facebook and Twitter.
It’s nice receiving Tweets and Facebook messages from your favorite people wishing you a Happy Birthday!
Yep, that sounds super geeky and I’ll take that as a compliment.
I see its your birthday? Happy Day! The world is a better place because of all of its creative people (you). @debpangdavis
@debpangdavis Happy Birthday!! Red velvet, yum. I hope it's a lovely one. :)
@debpangdavis Happy Birthday!
Make myself red velvet cupcakes.
My first red velvet cake was in Iowa of all places. From the very first bite I was hooked. Now that I have what I think is the best recipe for red velvet cupcakes, I’ll be making these for anyone who likes them as much as me.
I mean really, who cares if cupcakes as so passé? We don't follow trends. We follow our hearts!
I digress. Oh yes, where was I?
Enjoy making dinner at home.
There's something magical about making dinner with friends and for friends. I know: it's simply wonderful to feed people.
Cozy, easy, small = lovely
I love the power of smaller, meaningful gatherings.
Because... Everyone is present. Everyone has a chance to be heard. Everyone has the chance to listen.
It was perfection.
So maybe in another 10 years I’ll do something big.
The again, maybe I won't.
Thank you everyone who made my milestone super special.
