A quick entry today!! Yesterday was Mike’s birthday and in our family we really celebrate birthdays…..no matter how old you might be. I got that tradition from my mother and carried it on throughout my career as an early childhood teacher and of course, most importantly, wife and mother!! Birthdays are to be celebrated!! So yesterday we had the best part of the celebration…..THE CAKE.
We have decided to break from the traditional birthday cakes and go with the “decadent cakes” at Publix. We have tried several different flavors so yesterday Mike chose the “Midnight Fudge Fantasy.” You guessed it….pure chocolate. Oh well, you only celebrate this special occasion once a year.
Today, Saturday, we will continue the celebration with lunch together. We waited until today because Stephen is off on Saturdays and can join us. The birthday person always gets to choose his/her favorite place to eat. Mike chose The Mellow Mushroom. So the three of us journeyed to Peachtree City, which is about 35 miles from here, to enjoy a wonderful, delicious pizza. As usual, it did not disappoint.
Since The Mellow Mushroom is located quite close to Wild Birds Unlimited we decided to stop by and purchase another bag of food and a seed cylinder for our feathered friends. A stop at Barnes & Noble, Belk Department Store and Target and we were on our way home.
Good food, good fun and good fellowship…..Happy Birthday, Mike!!!
