COFFEE CHAT  (Day 7 of 7)
(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)

Hi, all,

I’ve been thinking about making Saturday a chat day for a while. There are just some things I want to write about that don’t fall within a given concept. They need to be shared over coffee (or tea) among friends. 🙂 Grab a cup!

My sweetie just had a birthday.

We had breakfast with friends at a local restaurant, ran errands (we picked up a lilac bush with dark purple flowers), and then had lunch at our favorite coffee shop. Time together at home and a bit of work, then off to spend the evening with more friends and karaoke (lots of silly singing and laughter).

It’s Paul’s birthday, so we did things he would enjoy.

A part of blessing Paul is knowing him well. I’ll own that I’m an introvert and it’s a stretch for me, but it’s a lovely sacrifice to give Paul those things he loves and enjoys.

We’ll continue to celebrate for a while (see below). It’s a great way to say I see you, I know you, and I love you.

We have a family rule:

When you hit your 50’s, you get to celebrate your birthday for a week. When you get to your 60’s, it’s a month. When you turn 70, it’s party all the time!
