I'm such a weird adult, I actually love my birthday! It's exciting to have lived for half a century so far and I have so many incredible memories and friends and family surrounding me.
My three sisters came to visit this past weekend and we had a blast celebrating. Our weekend plans included going to an opera, Madama Butterfly, joining two other friends, Carol and Kelly, then being pampered at the luxuriously relaxing Lake House Spa at the Lake Austin Spa, dinner out at one of my favorite places, Hudson's on the Bend, then to a movie at the iPic theatre at the Domain. My friend, Sherrie, also dined with us at Hudson's.
It was the longest time I had ever been separated from Isaac, and Kelly stayed home with him so I could have a nice time. He brought Isaac to me at the restaurant, then took him home after we ate, and met up with us at the movies.
Melody and Molly, two of Lindsey's friends who live in our neighborhood and were in show choir with her in high school are now students at the University of Texas and were in the chorus of the opera. It was a delight to see them all decked out in traditional Japanese attire for the show and to congratulate them afterward.
