While my birthday isn’t until Wednesday, what a different kind of day it will be!

Up until my quarantine birthday, my prior celebrations were carefully choreographed with people, places (and presents!). This year I’ll awake with no specific plans, which feels strange.

How do you party in a pandemic?

I’m sure there will be laughter with family over Zoom, and takeout from my favorite restaurant. And instead of sequins & stilletos, I’ll be in comfy clothes…and enjoying it πŸ™‚Β 

Will I feel sad because I can’t see my family? Of course. Or that I’m stuck at home? Maybe. But I know that as long as I have my friends, family and health – with a good amount of gratitude – I have everything I need.

Thanks for reading, have a beautifulΒ week! -xo

    To our beautiful daughter:
    No quarantine can erase the love that your dad and I felt as we held you in our arms on the day you were born. We love you and are so proud of the woman you are today. Happy Birthday dear Shauna! We look forward to the day when we can hug, laugh and eat lemon cake together again!

    Happy Birthday to the hardest working, most beautiful, fun loving, and caring woman in the world. Riley and I are so lucky you’re ours. What an insane year this has shaped up to be. Their is no one I’d rather be quarantined up with than you. You are seriously the yin to my yang. I’m not sure what stars aligned for us to find each other but I’m sure grateful they did. I can’t imagine doing life anyone other way than with you right by my side. Thank you for being you. Happy Birthday my little snack. I love you always and forever. ❀️ Peter
