Joe stopped on his way home and bought me a cake! This is big. I don't think I've had a birthday cake in ... um ... years. Maybe since my friend Jenneen made me one when we lived in Ohio! (I bought myself a cheesecake last year? the year before?)
I love the combination of chocolate and raspberry and this cake was just that. Yum.
Joe surprised me with a new zoom lens for my camera, which we used on Saturday for soccer games. We both love it. I feel like I can almost touch the boys as they play soccer on the opposite side of the field.
And we bought Joe a little iPod shuffle for his birthday. He turned 40 on Saturday. When you have two birthdays back to back like this, your birthday really only lasts 24 hours. Well, probably less than that. Just the hours you are awake on your actual birthday. There is no "leading up to" or "lingering past," because the next one is right there on top of it. I'm not complaining though. It is what it is.
