You Can Get Fit!

Every Year Is Special

Posted on: April 11, 2011

I’ve left you guys in the lurch all weekend, without even a Recipe Friday! I’ll make amends soon, promise!

This weekend was Mr. You Can Get Fit’s (Bruce’s) birthday. It wasn’t a big birthday, but I believe that every year–every day–is a reason to celebrate. (And apparently Chris had the same thoughts I did today!)

Friday, I made a yellow layer cake with chocolate buttercream–all from scratch–and we had a few friends over to share cake and some Black Adder episodes. Cake recipe came from America’s Test Kitchen, and I gotta say, the cake was a bit dry. However, the frosting was fantastic, containing both cocoa powder and melted chocolate. Yummmm.

Saturday, we got his free birthday scoop from our favorite local frozen custard place, sat in a park for a bit, had Thai food, and watched a favorite movie of his. Then, on Sunday, we finished the weekend having dinner with our neighbors and sharing a few rounds of Trivial Pursuit.

Even if it isn’t your birthday, or a special occasion… take the time out and enjoy! Every year, day, minute… is special.

What are you going to do to make today a special day? (Even if it’s a little thing. I’m not asking for the world! Maybe relax with your favorite tea, or book a manicure for the end of the week, or have dinner with a friend…)

My human makes a special breakfast the first morning of every month. It starts the month off right. Eggs Bokeelia.

That’s excellent, Sandy! Nice way to celebrate. 🙂

[…] This one isn’t fitness-specific, but I sure think it’s important to make every day count. […]
