I'm Only Happy when it Rains

The best birthday present so far has been the rain. Because if it isn't raining, then I look like a fool carrying around my umbrella. (Technically, the umbrella was a gift I demanded requested for the marathon, not for my birthday. Because mile after mile of seeing pretty VB umbrellas in the rain made my goal change from qualifying for Boston, to owning a little bit of Vera heaven.)

I'm on my third Vera Bradley umbrella (fourth, if you count the one I broke and convinced the little luggage store in Harvard Square to replace).

Also, did you know that if you take a picture diagonally it is automatically artistic? Nice shots, Vic!

The other best part of my birthday is my leftover Butternut Squash Ravioli from Not Your Average Joe's--my 2nd favorite New England restaurant. There happens to be one 30 minutes from us and I demanded requested that we go there for my birthday dinner. Even though I really wanted NYAJ, we still pretended that we had gone to Giacomo's on the way home. Because that is my actual favorite New England restaurant.

The End.


  1. Happy Birthday! I love your umbrella.

  2. Demanded is such a strong word.

  3. Can we go to NYAJ sometime? Giacoms is also my favorite New England resturant and butternut squash raviloi is heavenly. Happy Birthday!

  4. Something about pasta and presents go together. Happy birthday!

  5. Happy Birthday, dear friend! I hope you had a wonderful celebration. Wishing you a fabulous year ahead!

  6. Happy birthday! I hope you had a wonderful rainy birthday! :)

  7. THIS is the post I should have landed upon earlier this week. Glad you had a nice birfday. Cute pics, and I'm glad you got both your marathon and birthday wish :)
