|Lily's Chantilly cake and Hedi behind her|
My friend Lily is having a birthday today. Yesterday evening our friends Hedi and Dan, who live in the apartment complex, hosted a very small party (five of us) for her birthday, and it was so lovely. I bought this Chantilly cake from Whole Foods for us to enjoy, and boy, did we! She did have a small amount to take back home, but we all had to fight off the urge to eat it all up.

Then this morning Lily joined eighteen ladies for a lovely walk in the park, of which I was one. Although we went just under five miles, we felt we got a good workout, while some of the ladies went up to Big Rock Garden to add another mile or two.

And then a few of the ladies joined Lily and me to have coffee or a smoothie before heading back home. Lily deserves whatever good things the day might bring her, but we sure had a good start. The sun is shining, we are exercised and happy, and the day feels just right to continue a birthday celebration.
Happy Birthday Lily. I hope your day (and year) is packed with celebrations.ReplyDelete
