Hey, friends! Can’t talk long today. I’m getting ready for my…(guess what)…birthday party!
Yup. Yesterday I turned 24. I received lots of birthday wishes from colleagues at the Y who had figured out it was my birthday, as well as cards and Facebook wishes from friends and family.I also helped some guests of the YMCA get their luggage to the airport shuttle, delivered three enormous packages, collected recycled activity guides and lots of keys, delivered more fans to more cabins, re-cleaned a three bedroom cabin at the guest’s request, and composed a birthday poem while I was driving around the Y. It goes like this.
It’s my birthday once more,
and I’m already bored
with being asked where I go to high school
when I’m actually 24.
I came back after work to discover a wonderful birthday surprise: my boyfriend was cleaning my apartment! It looks so nice, all ready for the party and for my new roommate to move in. I told him he wins the awesome boyfriend award. Spending time with him was the best birthday present I could have asked for. ❤︎
The second best was the new A/C compressor in my car.
Other highlights of the week included:
Finishing The Secret Life of Bees.
Working my last day at the ice cream cart. 😢Walking up to Overlook Chapel with my boyfriend and showing him the incredible views of Long’s Peak and Rocky Mountain National Park. (Objects in photo are much larger than they appear.)Posting a delicious gluten-free, low-FODMAP recipe for Mile-High Ratatouille Pie to the blog.Going to see Star Trek: Beyond. It was terrible. The thing about being a Star Trek fan, though, is that you love it even though inevitably sometimes it’s terrible.
Thanks, as always, to Meghan for my favorite weekly linkup. More details from my birthday party to come on Wednesday.Wishing all my readers a wonderful week–stay cool!
