paul's birthday was on sunday, so our weekend was all about celebrating it! the fun started on saturday morning when we went over to our friends andrew and sabine's place for a "birthday brunch". nothing like good friends (and food) to make a milestone b-day a little less scary. they put on quite a spread! i've never eaten so much for breakfast in my life!
we had veggie sausages, herbed potatoes, scrambled eggs, fruit salad, fresh croissants, mixed greens salad, and fancy cheeses from the st. lawrence market).
after dinner, paul's dad and his partner joan came to our place for cake. i picked up a lemon cakelet from dufflet. it was so good...very lemony but not too sweet.
later i gave paul his gifts.
inside these packages were the postsecret book and a silkscreened tee by a local designer named yasmine louis.
the image on the shirt is from a photo she took of the 401 highway. the saying on it says "the 401 was still, we listened to the radio" (or something along those lines...i don't have it in front of me at the moment). especially meaningful since paul and i spent countless hours travelling the 401 to visit each other on weekends when we were dating...i was living in guelph and he was in toronto.
(sorry for the lack of photos of the birthday boy, but my honey was feeling a bit camera-shy yesterday...)
ps. paul's new band put up a page on myspace this weekend with a couple of their new songs. take a listen over here if you'd like! his bands older stuff (the songs i knew and loved before i even knew him are over here and here).
