So, my birthday. Ohh boy, where do I even begin. I cannot put into words how much all of your comments/tweets/texts meant to me. I cannot put into words the emotions that I felt. I was a rollercoaster of them, let me tell you. Is that how it’s going to be from now on? Happy, but not fully 100% completely happy? Smiling and then crying the next moment? This isn’t to say I wasn’t happy on my birthday. This isn’t to say it wasn’t an amazing day! Because, it was! It was the best it could have been! I got the sweetest comments from all of you and the nicest words, which made me smile so much and made my heart so happy, and some of which made me cry instantly (but a good cry, I promise). I would describe that day as very “full.” I was full of emotions, and kind words, and loving thoughts, and sweet messages, and so so so much LOVE. So, thank you. Each and every one of you. Thank you for making me smile. Thank you for making me cry. Thank you for filling my heart so full of love it could burst. Thank you for being here- it means everything to me.
The morning started with Birthday Starbucks, as it does. I love my husband.
I then opened my card and present from Zack: a Garmin Forerunner 10!!!! :) I am officially a runner! And then, of course, this was followed by a run with Zack. Perfection.
Daddio came over around noon and we went to my favourite pizza place for lunch. I cried at his card (“you are a light in my life”) and we spent most of the day back at our house, enjoying it.
My dad brought cupcakes, which of course were all delicious. We cut them all into 1/4ths so we could sample each one. The chocolate mousse was my favourite. YAY lunch dessert!
We had a Skype session with my brother, which was awesome. A direct quote from Jeremy: “I like your OOTD.” Best. Thing. Ever. Also, I had opened the gift he sent me: “Les Miserables” in French!!! It’s like the length of the Bible and I am so excited to read it! It will more than likely take me a few years to finish, but je suis déterminée. Merci, mon frère!
Thank you all for making my birthday really, really special. I can’t say it was the best, but it sure did make me feel extremely loved, and that’s the most important thing in the entire world.
