Today is my younger sister's birthday, which is always a special day. She and Stacy and I went to lunch at Bloom and had a delicious meal, including Stacy's wonderful orange amaretto creme brulee, and then had a mini shopping spree at Yankee Candle and the Coach store. Best gift of all, of course, is Stacy being out of the hospital and doing well and being our patient sherpa (those candles are heavy!) and witty companion today. Happy birthday!
