Today would have been Chris’s 40th Birthday. I would have thrown him a huge birthday party with all his friends (assuming post quarantine). We would otherwise be staying home and adhering to lock down since both of us would be high risk (cancer).
I connected with a lot of our mutual friends and I was happy to receive pictures of friends from all over toasting to Chris’s Birthday. I’m so grateful to have friends who are so supportive and always available.
Happy Birthday, Angel! I miss you!
My birthday was back in April. I did not expect to have anything eventful to really share, but I actually did. In these days of quarantine, whenever I visit my parents, I am always in the back yard and spaced out from my mom & dad. My brother and his wife do the same, we are all apart from each other, but still able to spend time together.
The last time I had gone to a grocery store was March 15th. I went again April 24th and found ground turkey. So I decided to make Chris's grandmother's turkey meatball recipe. My immediate family was gathering at my parents' house so I decided to cook for them. This one of the trays of meatballs ready to be cooked.
I was honestly not expecting any gifts. I was surprised to receive so many that were incredibly touching.
I also received several texts and phone calls from friends and extended family. So grateful to everyone for making my quarantine birthday memorable. Thank you all!
Have passport, will travel.
