This birthday has been one to remember. The presentation of cards, gifts, and my birthday peach cobbler definitely helped me enjoy my birthday to the fullest. Both boys decided they required me to take a picture of them with EBoy’s teddy bear (actually the teddy bear is mine- the first gift EDad presented to me when we met in person after knowing each other years on the internet- but I let him think it is his). Who am I to complain- willing photo subjects make for an unexpectedly fun (and sweet) gift.
My spa weekend with my Mom was very lovely. I scheduled our services (sugar and cream body scrubs and a pedicure) with an hour in between so we were able to relax in the serene spa environment, sipping tea and having great conversation. My Mom had never been to a spa before, but I think I may be on my way to successfully turning her into a full fledged massage addict.
The photo shoot the following evening was equally lovely. The anniversary celebration of a couple who are still in love after 40 years of marriage encouraged my spirit and touched my heart. To hear friends and family stand up and share each special moment they remembered with the couple made me dream of someday sharing such an experience with my own loved ones.
I enjoyed my birthday celebration immensely and look forward to the blessings my next year will bestow while I hopefully bless others as well.
