I went home for the weekend to celebrate my birthday, and while my stay was short, it was beautiful. With my closest friend, I shared a decadent breakfast of scrambled eggs with homemade waffles that were filled with blueberries and chocolate, and topped with yogurt, strawberries and bananas. With my family, I shared an assortment of salads and a slice of "Kiev" cake topped with a blue candle. I walked with my mom, talked with my grandma, and played violin. I'm glad I went.
