Yesterday was my birthday. My husband Mike, son Max and I went to a new-to-us restaurant called Fresco in Montclair, NJ to celebrate. It was our first visit to Fresco, but it certainly won’t be our last. The food was fabulous: fresh, flavorful and beautifully presented.
The restaurant is nicely done with cozy exposed brick, long red drapes, dark wood, candles. The waitstaff is attentive and friendly.
If you know me, then you know I love to have fun. And I like to make a fuss over special events. That’s why I loved that our waiter Vincent, once he learned we were celebrating my birthday, surprised me with this:
It was so much fun to be surprised! And I want some of those cool sparklers for my very own.
To you, my family and friends, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your birthday greetings in traditional cards, on-line cards, Facebook comments and by phone. Peggy, one of my besties, tucked this old photo into my birthday card.
The photo was taken the day we graduated from The College of New Jersey. When I saw us together in the photo it was like I had grabbed the caboose of a memory train: throughout the day, college memories tumbled around in my head. And that was a gift in itself.
How do you prefer to celebrate YOUR birthday? Big splash? Quiet dinner? Something else?
