Officially today is my birthday but I cheated and began celebrating secretly last week. Every year, as tradition demands, I have birthday breakfast, lunch or dinner with my dear friend Maria. This year we did breakfast at Mothers Bar & Bistro, one of my favorite stops for waffles and wild salmon hash. Luckily we went on a weekday and avoided the typical hour-long wait. Maria goes to school up north so I usually only get to see her twice a year, for her birthday and for my birthday. It actually works out rather well.
Do any of you have fun birthday traditions?
