All the Frills: Birthday Girl

So it was my birthday in April and, in addition to my helpmeet taking me for an awesome field trip to a local cat café that opened, I was also gifted this stunning orchid and two AMAZING books. It was a really swell birthday!

A cat cafe, flowers and books? Sounds like a perfect birthday to me! Happy belated :)

Totally agree that paid maternity/paternity leave is a feminist issue!

And how gorgeous is that orchid?

We just had a cat cafe open up in San Francisco. Sounds like a pretty great birthday (happy belated). I wish I knew how to keep orchids alive as they are so pretty.

That is so wonderful you get a maternity leave that feels like an actual appropriate length. Less so that your husband doesn't get as much, and I completely agree that needs to change. My cousin just had a child and the baby's mother got six weeks. That's it! That is ridiculous.

Cat Cafes seem to be the newest trend - one might even open in New Haven, which I'm pretty excited about.
