In the circle of people that I know, most of their birthdays tend to fall between April and May (including myself). And that means lots of dinners and gifts. I have no problems with either of those!
On Friday, Bob’s mom generously treated us to dinner at the quiet and unpretentious DeStefano’s in Brooklyn. I had never heard of it before she suggested it, but apparently it has been around for many years and is a favorite among a ton of celebrities.
On Saturday, we celebrated my mom’s birthday in New Jersey. She chose Carino’s for dinner, and though I tried to “gently suggest” a non-franchise restaurant, she wasn’t having any of it. There’s just no reasoning with a birthday girl!
Looking back at all of my pictures from the weekend left me feeling grateful for all that I have. I love being able to relive the memories (and food) through a collection of photos. I wouldn’t remember a thing without them. Though I’ve come to the realization that I need to start taking more pictures of people. This will be my assignment for next time!
