Goodbyes and early birthdays

Thursday evening I met my mom and sister to go to Crêperie Fyra Knop for an early birthday celebration. It’s not my birthday for another couple of weeks but because my mom and sister are off to the US on Monday, neither of them will be here for my birthday. Fyra Knop is an awesome little restaurant with a cosy atmosphere, and mouthwatering galettes and crêpes.
I had a nice evening, but there was a tender sadness in the air. My sister and mom’s pending trip to the US isn’t just a vacation. Mom will be back after visiting her family for a couple of weeks, but my sister is moving to NYC. I’ve been a wave of emotions the past week, the weirdest things have made me get all choked up. I’m not kidding you, I teared up from watching a medals ceremony from the Olympic games on the TV at the gym while I was sweating it out on the elliptical. What is wrong with me!? Thank goodness I was solo at the gym.
I still don’t know what I want to do for my actual birthday. Any ideas?
Oh, and on a side note – next time I go to Crêperie Fyra Knop, I want it to be on a date. It’s the perfect cosy-dimmed lights-candle lit-crowded little place for a date. (Boys, are you taking notes?)
