My baby turned 10 this week, which is strange because she was just born a few minutes ago. She had a pretty low-key birthday, by choice: too embarassed to have cupcakes at school, too shy to invite any new friends over. We ended up going out to eat at a Japanese restaurant, which was a perfect celebration - they had never been, not that they remembered, and they were so surprised when things burst into flames. It was great.
Also: Autumn is pretty here. In Texas we don't have autumn. I have actually been sitting at a computer screen for two weeks studying for my licensing exams (I passed!), so I was surprised when I drove down the highway yesterday and saw all of the beautiful colors.
