30 so far

Woke up this morning to a 30 extravaganza. Upon returning to bed after a brief emergency examination of my face in the bathroom mirror, Davey presented me with the most exquisite painting; and so my birthday began with tears of utter joy and amazement.


Then imagine my surprise as I walked into the kitchen and saw the 'little' morning gift Nat and Micah had left for me.


It wouldn't be a birthday with out a crown and a '30 Sucks' lollipop.


They left me a Donut Star apple fritter (best in town) for breakfast which I dutifully split with Davey.


And another painting from Davey with three secret doors cut into it revealed that tonight's birthday surprise is 6:30 reservations at Thai food!!


Beatrice bashfully handed me a DIY birthday card which read "You are my butrflie. Happy Birthday. This is gunt to be the best Birthday. I hope that you will like to. Love Beatrice"


I've received Facebook messages and emails, cards in the mail and kisses. The best birthdays are the ones gifted to you by the people who love you. This one's shaping up to be amazing.
