Wedding week

My sister is getting married tomorrow. So, Torsten and I are flying to DC tonight. I am excited to go back and see my family and some of my friends. Also, I am just generally excited about everything right now because it is warm and sunny and it stays light out until late and it feels like spring and spring makes me happy. And I am looking forward to wearing Dress C to a spring wedding. (That was the dress I had been leaning toward, and I had my leaning confirmed by the vast majority of you, so that was great.)

Also, my birthday is next week. Though it will be a little strange because I will still be in DC and Torsten will be back in Denver. I'm staying in DC an extra week for work, because the timing worked out nicely and this way I don't have to fly cross-country twice and also work paid for my plane ticket. But it didn't make sense for Torsten to give up a week of working on his company and have to pay for a ton of meals out and also pay for an extra week of dog boarding just so he could stay with me in DC and be with me on my birthday, so we'll be apart.

However, to make up for it my mom is going to stay in DC a couple extra days, and we are going to have dinner with family friends that day, so it should be a lovely birthday despite the lack of husband nearby. And the lack of presents (it just didn't make sense to splash out money on a birthday present I don't need, so I think if I go to France we're going to go ahead and call that trip my birthday present) will also be strange, but fine, really. I guess it just feels like an adult birthday, and I'm not sure yet if that's a good thing or not.

Anyway! Flying out tonight! Lots of work to do today, and must drop the dog off to board, and also finish packing and do several other things. And definitely will not be around to post for the rest of the week. But will probably still be posting next week! Taking a business trip to the place I used to live and work is always half weird and half very, very normal. And I think the blog posting falls in the "normal" category.

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week!
