Strawberry cake, a birthday party with family, red roses, gifts from Charleston, a visit from TJ, coffee with a lifelong friend, Chez Fon Fon for dinner, and a brand new Addison Story dress: all of those things were part of the day that rang in my 21st year!

Weekends are never long enough, are they?
Once again, I encountered a beautiful vase of flowers waiting for me on my counter when I arrived home. This time they were orange sherbet colored roses that my mom bought for fifty cents. At home, we ate well (Primavera, Continental Bakery, Surin, Chez Lu Lu, Flip Burger, and as my mom says: “Chez Ott”), celebrated much (Easter!), walked (on scenic Red Mountain, winding around English Village, passing the glass house), read often (a novel, “Four Spirits” for class… about Birmingham), shopped a bit, and traveled to Oneonta. My dad gave my car a makeover and we went to the “Library in the Forest.”
Prepare thyself for the cutest child in the world playing jazz… my my my.
Until the end of this semester, I will fantasize about my upcoming trip to High Hamptons, one of my favorite places ever. And to make this Monday a decent one, I’m sipping a Chai latte and listening to Ray Charles! Thank you, TJ Hester for treatin’ me so nice and buying me drinks.
THANK GOODNESS ITS ALMOST FRIDAY!
I will be going home tomorrow, then to Louisville next week! I love those two cities so. Also, I hope to work hard hard hard to get my website done very soon! That is the goal.
For now, some pretty flowers and a song from Adele’s newest album, 21.
PRESS PLAY: “Rumour Has It”
Absolutely stunning. Thank you, Mr. Hester. You are a super-pro.
Take a listen if you have even a moment. Jon Black clearly knew what was good for him when he wrote this song: My Love is With You All the Time.
