My Birthday Wish.....

Is to have a relaxing good time.... and I am having a ball! For starters, my sister, Regina, took me out to dinner at Luciano's. We sat in the lovely Tuscan Lounge near the fireplace. It was quite cozy. I enjoyed a glass of Pinot Grigio with my meal; Pappardelle Taormina. Everything was delicious.

Then she wisked me down to the NJPAC, where we enjoyed Oprah presents The Color Purple Musical about Love.

This soul-stirring musical is based on Alice
Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and the Oscar-nominated film adaptation by
Steven Spielberg. The Color Purple tells
the unforgettable and inspiring story of Celie, a woman who triumphs over
tremendous odds to find joy in life and her true inner beauty. Nominated for 11
Tony Awards, this landmark theatrical event is fueled by a roof-raising score
that melds jazz, gospel and blues. “The Color Purple is a
soaring, epic tale that made a joyful noise in my heart,” says Time.
This is an exclusive Metro area engagement!
I truly had an amazing time. The play was absolutley wonderful.... probably one of the best I've ever seen. It was colorful, lively, filled with talent and joy. WOW!

Regina, thank you so much for starting out the celebration with such a bang. I really, really enjoyed myself! Thank sis!
My actual birthday is on the 26th.. and I am expecting a few more 'surprises' I'm psyched!
That Girl,

I just love that you celebrate more days than just the actual "birth"day. You know I'm a fan of the "month-long-birthday-celebration"! LOL
