Happy 23


Well, yesterday I became another year older!

It was a wonderful day, as Ed had the whole thing planned out for me. We started with a delicious breakfast (french toast, whipped cream, strawberries, mimosas, and almond biscotti tea) and then spending the morning lounging around, reading and watching Pride and Prejudice (BBC version with Colin Firth). I also got birthday phone calls all morning, and got to speak to all of my family.

Once we finally roused ourself from the lazy morning and did some necessary cleaning, we went on a beautiful hike in the santa cruz mountains. I even ran about a tenth of a mile :)

Afterwards, Ed took me on a surprise trip to Half Moon Bay where we enjoyed a lovely dinner with oceanfront views.

I do believe that 23 will be a wonderful year :)

Happy Birthday! I've got socks older than 23 years (but that's my problem)

Good to see that you were watching the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice. I like that version, but my kids give me a hard time every time I drop it in DVD player.

Im hoping for an awesome year for you. Seems like you had a great time on your birthday. I thought about you and Ed this past Saturday when I was racing the Skyline to the Sea event. I remembered what you said about how Ed wants to try the 50k distance again in Santa Cruz. Such a great place to run.
