My birthday was on Wednesday, but I decided to have an early celebration so that my Richmond friends could come down. So Richmond and Durham friends got together, had some fizzy cocktails, chocolate cake, and oh yes we even had time for games. Lovely presents included french macaroons, metal keychain (one of those awesome presents that you know you need to get but never take the time to get!), champagne, and my favorite a poster made by Astoria that says “Let’s Grow Together 7.13.2013” Very sweet. I’m so glad I got this break to celebrate with friends.
