My dear hubby and I have birthdays in October that are only 6 days apart. So in our family, between our birthdays is “birthday week” and the weekend that falls in between we call our birthday weekend!
Once a year, I really try to step back from the craziness of Life a bit during that week, keeping it as “zen” as possible and do something personally meaningful that adds to my life experience and memories somehow. And together, we try to do something special every year on our birthday weekend. That and our anniversary near Christmas have been our main “date traditions” we strive to make sure we do something special and different for each year (going on 14 soon)!
So last night, my sister-in-law took the kids and we tried out a new wine bar/Italian cafe in town that we heard great reviews about. It’s called Pizzeria Corvina. It was soooooo goooood! Their coal fired pizza, chicken alfredo, wine and beer selection, desserts and coffee were just excellent! Not to mention the incredible atmosphere and open kitchen and the service was top notch! I could hang out there all day – just simply lovely and the staff are awesome! And open ’til midnight on Saturdays!
We tried to get a photo of us together with the wine in the background, but alas! My camera seems to be on the fritz and it was impossible to get a clear shot! Ack!
Still I think you will like it – go check it out!

I know all about birthday week and the craziness of it. I start off birthday week, then my son’s birthday follows 4 days later and then it’s my husband’s turn 3 days after that!! In our house, it tends to be the child’s birthday that wins out. We do manage to go to lunch by ourselves though.
Happy belated birthday.
Hey thanks Victoria! Luckily we don’t share the “birthday month” with anyone else. lol!
You know, we still need to meet for coffee or something someday!
