Today was my mom's birthday. I gave her Lemon and Neroli perfume, as mentioned here, and I (with help from my boyfriend at 1 AM last night) baked her a chocolate cake from this recipe. My dad, sister, sister's boyfriend, my mom and I went out for Mexican food. She said it was the best birthday she's had in twenty years. I had a great day spending time with my family. After three hours on the road though, I think I am ready for bed!
