The day I turned 36

I used to loathe my birthdays, but as the years go by, I have embraced them.  Mr. Man and I snuck away from a lunch out the day before my birthday to say farewell to 35.  
That night I took AK on a Girls Night with her Aunties.  
I have a plan for my 36th year with 36 individual goals for the year.   One of them involves hiking more, and to start my 36th year my friend Laura and I hiked my favorite hike.
We are stuck in somewhat of a restaurant rut and we went on an adventures to find the closest thing to NY Pizza in LA.Turns out, Village Pizza was the winner.
I couldn't resist getting some fancy cupcakes while we were out.  And Miss AK couldn't resist telling folks it was my birthday, notice they taped a candle to the box.  
My family sings the most rousing rendition of Happy Birthday. 
Another year older, hopefully wiser too.

"Let's go on a hike," she said. "It'll be fun!" she said.

We did. And it was. Even though it was a HIKE and not a walk like I was expecting. So much fun! Happy birthday! This year is going to be the best yet!

I wish I was there to sing Happy birthday with you. If it is the version I think you're speaking of, it was originally happy birthday sung to the tune of a traditional funeral march, but then degraded to moaning and gnashing of teeth. Is that the one?

Happy Birthday, I'm glad you had that instead of the alternative.
