It's my birthday, and it's HOT!
OK, maybe it's not really that hot, but it's been hot. My dad called to wish me a happy birthday this morning, and he said, "you know, it was 107 the day you were born." Maybe that's why this heat doesn't actually bother me quite as much as it should. The chilly 90s will feel good this weekend, though!
Speaking of my birthday... I had a great day today. It started off with a text at 1:30 am from one of my favorite former co-workers who never forgets a birthday. My dear Nebraska friend was next, with a 5:00 am shout-out on Facebook. (I love morning people!) It just kept going from there.
Micah made me breakfast, the kids made me cards, and I got serenaded over the phone four times before 7:30. Then Micah surprised me with new throw pillows (as modeled by Jonah)!
I love when he picks things out for me that I wouldn't normally choose myself. Now we have a little splash of color in the living room.
At work I got balloons, lunch, cake, and cards. Our final celebration was going to Maggiano's for dinner. It was fun to go to a "fancy" place and practice our manners! I don't know of a better way to end the day than with creme brulee. Unless it's with another complimentary creme brulee, which we brought home for tomorrow!
I'm so blessed, even when it's not my birthday. I'm thankful for all of my friends and family, who always make me feel so loved.
