I am celebrating my 27th birthday today, and the weather is happy with frequent bursts of thankfulness. Twenty-seven has always been my lucky number so I am not all that surprised, but I have to say this has been an excellent vintage: my first year working for myself (I do recommend it to anyone who likes to work in his pajamas and dislikes being told what to do and when), my first cookbook completed, plenty of gratifying and challenging projects, a few fun-filled trips, more splendid meals than I can count, and more chocolate than I care to admit.
My plans for today involve a blissful mix of doing nothing at all, spending time with the people I love who are close by, and thinking about those who aren't. And as I do just that, I will keep my fingers crossed, and wish for another year just like this one.
