For this year’s birthday, Alec planned an extravaganza of events, spanning three days. Good call, as Eloise had the worst night sleep the night before my actual birthday, leaving Alec a zombie and Eloise cranky all day.
On my actual birthday all we could handle was a casual lunch at Keste Pizza in the West Village, followed by gelato at PopBar.
Outside PopBar, Eloise was desperate to eat my gelato. See my beautiful Tiffany blue bracelet from Alec?
Since there was nothing else to be done, we then took Eloise to run around in a playground.
Saturday night Alec treated me to a delicious dinner at Boloud Sud
. The food was exquisite, the service friendly, and they served me a birthday dessert. Yay! It was wonderful for Alec and I to have some time together, just the two of us.
Afterwards, we walked through Central Park.
Sunday was lunch with close friends Dan and Sue. We had a casual lunch at my fave local comfort food-provider, Bark Hot Dogs
… followed by my favourite ice cream at Ample Hills Creamery
. Notice how all the celebrating is about FOOD?
Thank you Alec for so thoughtfully planning a wonderful birthday for me. xoxox
