happy.birthday [my.life]

This past Monday I celebrated my birthday!  It was a [cr-a-zy b.u.s.y. day] but as a friend said “I like birthdays as an adult, seems like you get to celebrate longer than just one day!”  I think I have to agree…it’s true…mine started a week ago Friday night and I still have birthday lunches scheduled for this coming week with friends…I guess there is beauty in growing up!!!

My birthday started at 6am…bright and early

I Traveled through 4 states on my birthday

A stop at Panera bread for my all time absolute favorite- chocolate chip bagel

Cards delivered in my mailbox- that is so a lost art, that’s why I love it

Voicemails with many versions of “Happy Birthday to YOU!” Many of which made me literally “LOL”

My sweet students bringing in cards and gifts- they wonder why I adore them?!?!?

Starbucks- indulging in my all time favorite at the moment- tall.skinny.decaf.salted caramel. mocha. with whip.

Lunch at Chick-fil-A…if you know me even a little big…you know my weakness is Chick-fil-a fries…so I indulged

Many text messages…including one from my uncle [who is sporting his new i-phone] …which totally made my day!

It was a good one- I’m so thankful to be surrounded by great friends and family… but most of all I am so thankful for a loving Father who cares enough about me to give me the small things in life to enjoy!!!
