I definitely had a happy birthday! Since we've been married, my birthday has gone by every year, usually with some little notice. This year Will went all out in making it special. He bought presents when he was in Moscow, and he's been giving them to me all week. Then, yesterday he topped it all off with a picnic in the woods. He bought and prepared everything. The food was wonderful, and we had a great time together.
Somehow I feel really old. Doesn't twenty-six seem like a big jump forward?
Oh, the city of Kovrov also gave me a birthday present. The hot water came on yesterday! Of course, that was more likely in honor of the 90th birthday of The Factory, but I certainly appreciate it, too.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes yesterday, and thank you to Will for giving me a birthday to remember!
