I've stopped wanting to make a really big fuss about my birthday as I've gotten older and crankier, but I had a lot of fun this weekend with friends and family. It started out with a trapeze class (never knew I was afraid of jumping off a tiny podium 25 feet off the ground):
Saturday was spent riding with friends and hanging out with family:
And Sunday night brought the home version of the DC cupcake tour.
So I don't necessarily think that such a celebration was in order, but I'm happy to have closed out another year feeling surrounding by love... and completely stuffed with frosting.
