Since Jack has been in school (and before that, I was in school), our celebrations are usually curtailed by semester-ending tests and projects. Heck, last year he wasn't even here! Not that he skipped out on me--he was out-of-town on an internship and I was over nine months pregnant, otherwise I would have considered spending the afternoon with him. Long story short, some family friends took me in and helped me celebrate.
My birthday appears on a Tuesday this year, not exactly prime celebrating time, but Jack was well prepared beforehand. He took me on a Friday night date that kept me feeling young at heart.
The evening was certainly memorable. I love the atmosphere and the fact that people commonly mistake me as a student while visiting. That's a pretty good present too.
