The Best Birthday Party Ever

I can’t help myself. I have to blog about the terrific birthday party that was planned for me by my son, Aric. He chose a restaurant that I have wanted to try for years—Cleveland’s very own Iron Chef Michael Symon’s, Tremont restaurant, Lolita.

Ten of us gathered Friday evening for a most excellent meal. When we arrived, chilling on the tables were two bottles of white wine, compliments of my manager at Chico’s, Tab. I was overwhelmed by her thoughtfulness—I work with the best gals ever!

After dinner there was a flurry of gifts. Chardonnay, gift cards to my favorite spa and, what every genealogist loves to read, a book on local cemeteries!

It has been some time since I have had an actual birthday party. This was so special because it was planned by my son and included family and friends. It was a perfect evening.


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Sounds like you had a marvelous time. I think I was ten at my last birthday party (don't want to say how long ago that was - LOL).

  2. I had my very first birthday party when I turned 40 thanks to my sister and my niece with a little help from my husband.
    Very thoughtful of your son to have it somewhere special.
    Congrats. again.

  3. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing with us your fantastic birthday! When anything is so special, we want to share! I am glad you did! Was it a special birthday?
