|Two candles: one for my father-in-law's and one for my birthday at grand chef|
Marc Meneau's restaurant, L'Esperance in Burgundy last night.
"Happy Birthday! I have a present for you." said the nurse at the American Hospital in Paris as she slapped a plastic bracelet with my name and date of birth on my wrist earlier today.
Usually, I prefer to celebrate my blog's milestones rather than my own, but after 10 days of premenopausal hell, a weekend trip to Burgundy with Stéphane's family that was cut short by an early morning drive to the hospital and three hours sitting in the emergency room, I'm feeling thankful to be 49 years old. It's time to celebrate with The Beatles' "Birthday" song!
