Happy Birthday to me!

Yeah..I still get excited about my birthday every year. I know there will be a “suprise” party with my friends over at midnight, I know my parents, sister, aunts, uncles, cousins, inlaws  will call and wish me. But every year, it is just as delicious basking in their wishes and knowing that I am not forgotten ( one of my secret fears ever since I have moved to the US )

This year, the K put in some extra effort to make it even more special. And I love him for that. Firstly, he bought be three gorgeous pairs of footwear – one in hot pink with a huge buckle on the front, an aqua peeptoe and some very comfortable walking shoes. I am wearing the hot pink ones today to work and I keep staring at them ;;)

And then, the guy goes ahead and buys my birthday cake from one of my favorite bakeries, that too in Tiramisu flavor. Did I tell you that I can do anything for a piece of that dessert? And then, in the cutest way, he gives away goodie bags to all my friends who came over…little colored bags with 2 packets of chips, a bag of candy, a piece of cheese and some hard candy. There were simultaneous “awwww….”s from all my friends…and I felt soo proud of my K, I wanted to hold him tight right there…

And then, when I thought it was all done, and woke up on my birthday morning, I heard the door bell ring. When I opened it, there were birthday balloons tied to my car, and a card taped to the window. It was from my SIL and BILs families. Them being not so big on birthdays but still making it special for me the way I like it made me go all mushy again. Rummy walked around the whole morning with those balloons tied to his collar, looking like a bumble bee with 2 antennae over his head.

This morning I had so many choices for what to wear, thanks to my parents and sister who parcel me clothes every year ( I think the mail charges cost more than the clothes, but you think this deters my mom? ). I am in love with FabIndia all over again, can’t wait to get my hands on more cotton stuff when I am in India.

I will be finishing off the evening with a nice dinner, just me and K. We will get back home, sit with our dog cozily and watch some random movie we don’t really care about. I have a smugness today I can’t shake off. I feel truly blessed to be surrounded by people I love and who love me. Today just reminds me of how special they are.

Who cares about age, I can’t wait for my next birthday already!
