Yesterday, I turned 28. TWENTY-EIGHT! For some reason, it felt more natural than turning 27 did.
I had a lemon cake with cream cheese frosting. Elizabeth helped stock it with candles, of which there were many. (Next year, we're just using those Arabic numeral candles!)
My birthday dinner: Curry Rice!
My birthday present from Jim: a Laini's Lady! She's so graceful--I love her. She has a quote by Hans Christian Anderson on it.
And here is Elizabeth after a bit of the cake, with "her" Buddhist prayer beads. (Usually, she wears them like necklaces.)
Today, Elizabeth and I ran around getting my name changed officially. It only took two and a half years!
