This time last year, I was spending my birthday in Norway on a six-hour bus ride between Olso and Voss. (Here’s a lovely view from my window.) While I had a wonderful time, I am so glad to be home this year, and here is how only I would celebrate:
1. Bought myself a “Golden Apple Tree” print by Tugboat Press.
2. Received a staple-less stapler from my husband who is probably the only person in the world who knows how thoughtful a gift this is for me.
3. Got tickets to see “Moonrise Kingdom” tonight with the husband.
Not a bad way to start off another year alive, as well as the first day of summer. (Yes, regardless of what the almanac says, I hold off celebrating the beginning of summer until my birthday commences.)
