This has been the week of special birthdays.
First, my baby boy “B”, (left) celebrated a biggy – one with a zero behind it, and my best girl friend, Barton, had one with a five behind it. BIG!
At left, B and I did Bubble Tea at a Nashville tea bar.
If you haven’t had Bubble Tea, ask “B” before you try it. I guess it’s a big city thing.
His birthday on Thursday was a non-stop day of restaurant hopping in Nashville with his brother, William, whose tastes are very sophisticated.
We had some brand new experiences– a Hookah bar, sushi and two nights of trivia where “B” was the grand prize winner. I wish he would go on Jeopardy. He would be a shoo-in.
Today, was a benchmark for my beautiful friend, Barton (at left blowing out her fire).
We go way way back to bobbie sox and bubble gum. Barton, Marie, Norma, Ruthie and I began with lunch in a private room at The BookMart (very private – we could hoop it up and no one cared) followed by birthday cake at my place.
Never mind that I forgot to serve the cake until dusk when everyone was about to leave. So we zoned out on sugar (except for me since I gave it up for Lent). I watched them and drooled like a teething baby. Do you think Barton looks 55? I don’t think so.
What a wonderful week for two people whom I love without reservation. Thanks to William for making the Nashville trip the best ever.
