This year for M's b-day I took her into the city to see Mary Poppins on Broadway. We spent the morning walking around my old neighborhood in the West Village. We went to my all time favorite brunch place which surprisingly is still there and then walked by my old apartment which "still" has my name on -- that always makes me laugh. Then it was onto some shopping around the MPD and up to see the show. I see a new birthday tradition forming.
