My good friend, Meredith, and I have the same birthday. She is Concert Master and my stand partner in the Orchestra at Temple Square and contractor for many of the studio jobs I am involved in. Consequently, for the past fifteen years, we have spent at least half of our birthdays celebrating together in one way or another. Tonight was no exception.
Our Autumn Orchestra at Temple Square Concert landed on our day. As is customary at the end of a concert, flowers are presented to our conductor, Igor Gruppman and the evening's soloist. Tonight, Igor had planned ahead, divided his own flowers in two, and on stage during the final applause, presented them to Meredith and me and whispered a "Happy Birthday." It was very sweet and I was so touched.
The flowers were stunningly beautiful!
And when I arrived home, Potts (who had been to the concert the night before) had a candlelight dinner awaiting me. He was adorable and I felt SO loved! I'm grateful I married a romantic.
