^^^we filled the apartment with 30 gold balloons for josh’s golden birthday. each had a note from a friend or family member saying what they love most about him. in a perfect world, those little notes would have made it inside the balloons, but you know, with two kids hanging on me and josh texting me saying he was on his way home much sooner than i anticipated, taped to the sides was good enough for me.^^^
^^^we spent the evening together down at eataly where we had dinner as a family. that place is so much fun to walk around. also, the gnocci with braised lamb was so delicious i am still dreaming about it.^^^
^^^so let’s talk about this gnocci with braised lamb some more. because i’m serious. it’s the best.^^^
^^^he didn’t want cake. just one last pint of ice cream to eat all by himself because he’s crazy and has decided to cut out ice cream for an entire year (it’s his vice.)^^^
we love you, papa! happy birthday!
more birthday celebrations the weekend before, here.
