Celebrated my birthday in the city today. Trekked to Midtown with a friend and saw the tree again. Did some fun browsing in Anthropologie. Had a decadent hot chocolate at Maison du Chocolat (thanks for the tip, Kathi). Decided to hit the Paris Theatre for a showing of The Reader, a mind-blowing and beautifully shot movie. Hit Little Italy for some old school Italian food.

On top of it all, felt blessed and gratified by all the well wishers who sent cards, emails and Facebook greetings. So wonderful. I feel abundant.

Happy Birthday to me.
