29

Okay. I realize that I may have led you to believe that we would be taking a break from birthdays for a while. The thing is, today is my birthday. Oops.

I'm feeling the urge to shout something from the rooftops, and since this little space is the closest thing I have to a rooftop, I hope you will indulge me for a moment.

Ahem.

To my dear family and friends who called, sent e-mails, cards, cookbooks, flowers, and even rugelach, to you who sang to me on key and off and in multiple languages, who joined me for a lovely dinner and wrote me notes that I couldn't read at the table lest I totally lose it and cry in my dessert:

Thank you!! I feel thoroughly celebrated.

I am so grateful to have you in my life everyday.

29. I like the sound of that.

Onward.

Oh happy happy, sweet Jess! I'm feeling the urge to cook for you. - Zahavah/Gayle

Thanks for the birthday wishes. If that urge blossoms into a full fledged offer, I won't turn you down.

Happy Belated Birthday!! I hope you had a truly wonderful day yesterday! I am planing to make the cassata cake next weekend and I will be sure to let you know how it turns out. I am sure it will be wonderful. I am very excited! Thanks again I know you put alot of time and care into your blog.

Thank you, Anonymous, for both the birthday wishes and the blog love. This year, I requested ice cream cones instead of cake, so it's nice to know that someone out there will be going the cake route soon. It's like getting a cake, vicariously, to go with my ice cream. I look forward to hearing about it.
