Virtual Birthday

Happy Birthday Emily!

Today is my sister's birthday! Emily, if you were in Seattle, here is how we would celebrate your special day.

Our day would start with generous piece of my famous coffee cake and a walk up here for our favorite morning libations. After being properly caffeinated, we'd head down the hill to walk your favorite lake in Seattle. After a bit of exercise, we'd pamper ourselves and our tootsies in preparation for our afternoon shopping marathon. Before the shopping marathon, we'd have a lunch bite here, definitely ordering the fresh rolls. Refueled and with our feet properly rested, we'd head out to your favorite shopping destination. There you would spend as long as you liked, looking through every department, every clearance rack and trying on a whole cart of clothes. While there I would not sigh, roll my eyes or sit on the bench near the dressing rooms with my arms folded. I would be a pleasant shopping companion, encouraging you to go for the black peep toe heels that would be perfect for work. Wearily we'd make our way home, order a large AGOG and watch your favorite movie, and once again, there'd be no eye rolling, sighing, etc. The End.

Oh, your gifts. This one is from your oldest niece. This one from all of us. And this one from me.
