It's Doolies's birthday today. Happy birthday, Doolies! I gave her my gift--and, yes, a fancy hat and scarf IS a good birthday present. Doolies shares her birthday with my niece, Rachel. We gave up trying to find gifts for our nieces, and decided to send amazon.com gift certificates for all birthdays (that and contribute to their college funds--they're not as excited by that as their parents).
Getting back to the Doolies (which is exactly what she was thinking at the end of that last paragraph), we have reservations at the Waterfront Seafood Grill in Seattle tonight to celebrate.
This has been a very busy year for the both of us. Last year on Doolies's birthday: we were not married, still lived in the Castle, Doolies had not opened her medical practice, and we didn't have Ziggy or Button (oh, quiet bliss!). A lot can happen in a year. I'm hoping this year is just as exciting!
