I just loved all the birthday notes, calls and e-mails. It warms a girl's heart to know she's being thought of by so many! Thanks to each of you who blessed me with a comment or e-mail. (My favorite bloggy greeting came from Frances: "May your heart be full of joy as you look back with gratitude and forward with hope.")
I had some casual gatherings with friends, and then on Saturday night, my husband took me out to this yummy place. After dinner, we went to a hockey game! Eric made me our traditional birthday breakfast in bed (Betty Crocker cinnamon streusel muffins--they are awesome! Please e-mail if you know a homemade version that's as good or better . . . ) and he also surprised me by hiding 29 notes around the house of things he appreciates about me, which was so encouraging!
Here's us at the hockey game in our 4th row seats. Wahoo!
