This week has been full of unexpected fun. Last weekend, after going out on a long drive with the mister, I returned home to find a house full of friends yelling "surprise!". Sean had worked it out that our friends from out of state were able to come in for six days to spend our vacation/my birthday week with us. I typically live in fear of surprises, but this was just about the coolest thing I could have asked for.
Last night, after everyone had returned home to their respective states, Sean presented me with my other birthday surprise: An Olivetti Lettera 22. The same model of typewriter that Sylvia Plath used to write some of her most famous work. It has to be one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever received. Not only is it beautiful, but it is fully operational.
I'm fortunate to have such wonderful people in my life. Friends that are happy to spend the week lounging around, cooking good food, and sharing each other's company.
Lots of love for all of the birthday wishes I've received today.
All the best,
