So I am 34 today. I remember when I thought that was so mature, so put together, so adult. However, as Tate and I were jumping and jumping on the trampoline and later, swimming in the pool, I felt like I was still a kid.... a kid with a little buddy to hang out with.
My family had a nice informal party for me with cupcakes, gifts, and chinese food for dinner. It was great. We actually celebrated yesterday as well, so I wasn't expecting the surprise celebration today. OK--I was expecting the chinese food :)
Yesterday we went to Ann Arbor to go to Zingerman's Deli and hang out in Kerrytown. I still get that excited feeling in my gut every time I pull into "A squared". I had it every time I returned when I was in college, and it still has yet to go away. I love it. There are so many great things about that town and the energy and open spirit just gets to you. It isn't just the university thing either, because we were barely even on campus. I had to call one of my best college friends, Alex, and tell him that I was in Ann Arbor. He always suggests to our pack of friends that we all come back and settle there. I would love to!
