Normally every year on my birthday, I am stuck in the solitude of my house because it is twenty degrees outside…but since moving to Louisiana, I can actually enjoy the outdoors.
Today, on my 24th birthday, I woke up to my boyfriend boiling a 32 lb. sack of crawfish for lunch. Needless to say, that started the day off great. After lunch, we drove the boat to the marsh and had a relaxing afternoon of fishing. After we got back and finished supper, my boyfriend took me to Mommie Jo’s Restaurant in Cut Off to get the best red velvet cake that I have ever eaten in my life.
While it’s not the same not having my family around on my birthday, I think I can get used to the beautiful 80 degree weather in March.
