I celebrated my birthday this past week - here is a spread about what a wonderful few days of celebration I had!
Here are some photos from scenes from my day... I really wish I was better about taking more photos as I should have many more to share - but these will have to do.
My day started out with good friends. Homemade chocolate chip scones (the chef knows how much I love them) for breakfast over coffee and glossies at the bookstore. Then cupcakes (this chef also knows how much I love her baking) after a wonderful lunch at my new favourite restaurant. I was gifted with the bag shown below (photo from the Cath Kidston site) that I have been drooling over! I was so surprised! Oooh, and the bag is lined with the most beautiful floral fabric. Thank you girls - I looooooove it!!
I had the nicest phone conversation with my mom too - she told me, which she has never said in the past, that to her my real birthday is 3 days later. That was when she first meet me, when the social worker brought me home to her.
I also cannot believe how many people sent birthday wishes too me via facebook! Every time I checked my email I had tons of well wishes. Loved that - thank you everyone!
Really, this has been one of the best birthdays, and my first married!
The Nostalgic Musings journaling e-course is going great - it is not too late to sign up, you can join at any time and go at your own pace (we have got a great group going and would love to have you!). Here is a sneak peek of the prompt we are working on now.
