birthday countdown

one week from today i will be 38. dear. lord.
honestly, i had to do the math. born in 1973 = what? 
amazing that as we get older, the years merge into each other.

i plan to take next thursday off until 5pm (school time) and am debating the best way to spend the day. here are a few of my dreams/options: museums, bookstores, high tea, art galleries, secondhand shopping, massage, yoga, journal writing at the arboretum, picnic lunch in the park with sir louis + le beau, matinee. 

hmmm, options abound for my day. now to let it all unfold into a perfect plan. 

any suggestions on favorite ways to indulge in a sultry dc day?

bisous. x

Hi Kimberly,

Early Happy Birthday! Mine will be coming in a few weeks and this post made me think that I need to take a day of vacation also to celebrate. Each year I also give myself a really nice present- haven't quite decided what I will give this year.

Have you noticed (or is only me) that celebrating seems to be a bigger deal each year? I am starting to think I need to celebrate my birthday for at least a week! : )

Two totally random suggestions:
-Pay a visit to the Amarican Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. http://www.avam.org/
-Visit Spa World in Centerville, VA (never been but I've heard it's pretty cool). Hope your day is wonderful!

I say you hire a cabana boy for a personal, in-home massage and bubble bath. And then pick up with the other activities on your list.
