Richa Gangopadhyay Instagram - Celebrating my first birthday as a mom was perfect on so many levels! All I wanted to do was keep it low key and spend it with Joe, Luca and my mom (visiting from Michigan), but they went out of their way to make it extra special for me ๐Ÿ’“๐ŸŽ‚. Joe gave me and my mom the ultimate double-birthday treat of getting us tickets to the John Williams concert (his bday bash) at the Oregon Symphony, which was fantabulous!! (We are huge fans of epic movie soundtracks over here!). Every time I attend the symphony, I feel like picking up my violin again ๐ŸŽป I was touched by the surprise gift packages from family and friends that spoiled me to the core...thank you for your thoughtfulness! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ Of course my birthday would have been incomplete without (excessive) good eats! He made us his famous, world-class omelettes for breakfast and took us to dinner at one of our favorite hole-in-the-wall Korean restaurants, Koreana. My mom made my fave desi french toast and I got overloaded with cupcakes from my favorite bakery, @cakeit_portland and a delicious espresso ganache cake on top of that from Joe! ๐ŸฐI firmly believe you're not a true Bengali unless cake is one of your favorite food categories!! ๐Ÿง My birthday also marked the first day of Spring, enjoy the sun ๐ŸŒž, rain showers โ˜” and blooming flowers! ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ’ Thank you to everyone who wished me and made me feel special on my birthday ๐Ÿ’— #birthday #firstbirthdayasamom #cupcakes #birthdaycake #oregonsymphony #johnwilliamsconcert #arleneschnitzerhall #portland #firstdayofspring #springishere Portland, Oregon
