Hi Twenty Seven!

by lostindrawers

How to celebrate the birthday of a woman who was taught you most everything about adventure?  You plan a day of favorite things, delivered in both new and familiar ways.  We begun the day by flowers delivered, french macaroons appearing, mimosas (heavy on the OJ) and a leisurely morning of getting ready.  And for what?  Well, we decided lunch was too important on such a day to leave to familiarity, and so I took Heather to Oddfellows in Oak Cliff’s Bishop Arts District.  It did not disappoint. A take on ham & cheese with (french) frites & a cherry limeade for her, and huevos rancheros & coffee for me.  The weather cooperated again this day, so strolls were in order around this tiny pocket of Oak Cliff that was inspiring and even yielded treats for one Emory Holden Liles.  The Nasher Center was a great backdrop for the day, but the real treat was the exhibit of amazing Tibetan art at the Crow Gallery (and its free!).  From there, Society Bakery, Corner Market, and shopping brought smiles, treats, dresses/skirts and conversation with engaging people.  Dallas conquered, Fort Worth brought simply its charm, a new Italian restaurant with patio seating facing Sundance Square and perfect sunsets.  Did I mention french macaroons?  Did I mention that on this day of all days, a boy should give a girl a big dose of contentment and smiles.  Happy Birthday, darling…you deserve all of this and so much more.

Now, how about that un-birthday?
