My Birthday

Thank you for all of the birthday love!  WOW!  I felt so humbled.  It was the best birthday.  All the phone calls, texts, facebook posts and cards were so so so thoughtful and I hope you all know how much it meant to me.

My husband is one wonderful man.  He didn't let me lift a finger (which was hard for me), but it was so thoughtful and I appreciate it more than he knows.  He made me a delish dinner, is taking me out Saturday night, we had cupcakes to celebrate and he added to my wardrobe & jewelry collection - you can never go wrong with any of that in my book!  

My parents were so thoughtful as well - they contributed to the Dyson fund, took me out for birthday lunch and surprised me with chocolate covered strawberries delivered to my work.  Mom's making her famous ribs for dinner Sunday night along with dad's homemade banana pudding.  Seriously, how blessed am I...

One of my co-workers made me Dirt Cake at work and it was soooo good.  I love anything chocolate! :) I just can't get over the thoughtfulness.  I almost feel like my wedding day emotions again with being completely overwhelmed with love and kindness.  I felt like I couldn't show enough how much it all meant to me.  So again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Now, you can stop reading if you want.  The rest of this post will just be pictures and it could get boring, but of course I had to document my day (after we got home from work).

Me and my dog-ter

The hubs and I

Birthday cupcake!  Please excuse the attire & messy hair - I had just gotten done working out and eating.  
This is real life, folks.  
We're not always put together 24/7.  At least I'm not.

I hope you have a blessed day and feel so loved - if not, I send some your way! XOXO

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. - 1 Corinthians 13:13
