Another day, another year older

Quiet, laid back, and relaxing— sometimes it's just nicer that way. Sunday apartment cleaning, worked on my book, enjoyed the treats of the day:

Enjoyed preparing one of my favorite meals for my friend Cristina and I: arugula salad, with tomato, fresh mozzarella, basil, prosciutto, parmesan, with truffle oil. Accompanied with almonds, olives, and apricots. Popped a bottle of Prosecco— I'd like to think you were all there in spirit.

For the cake, my all-time favorite dessert: french mousse cake with fruit on top. Yum... we split a pistachio and a chocolate cake; I made a wish, or two…

Treats from Cristina's trip to Italy: "Pinnochio" brand ink and pencil set, and Italian chocolates.

And I'm proud to say that I completed the only goal I was allowed to give myself this year, for my birthday. Yep, just barely made it, two days before due date. More on that later…
