Birthday Weekend Recap

Things that made me so incredibly happy this weekend:

  1. It was my 21st birthday (for all of you out there who have escaped the barrage of reminders that pepper my posts as of late.)
  2. My beautiful birthday cake (pictures to come.)
  3. The Passion Pit album downloaded for my by my roommate and now it has dominated my listening pleasure (check them out here and here.)
  4. The prayer written inside of a birthday card from my grandparents, reproduced below:
Dear Lord,
Please bless this granddaughter with all that she may need as she seeks to do Your will in life and follow where You lead. Give her guidance in decisions, give her joy in little things, let her know You're always there, no matter what tomorrow brings. Fill her heart with the happiness she's so deserving of for the way she's blessed her family with her gentle faith and love.
This is our prayer for you, Kate

It brought tears to my eyes.

And last but not least... this yummy dinner inspired by the unseasonably warm weather consider it is almost February and I am used to only eating soups and stews at this point of the year.

The makings of a yummy tuna salad - a curious craving but a craving none the less.

My tuna salad dressing contains celery leaf, flat leaf parsley, lemon juice, olive oil, red pepper flake, and salt. The salad itself is tuna (of course!), minced onion, celery, and red pepper. Simple but sublime!

Served as a sandwich...

... and salad.
