Happy Birthday to me

Today I turned 29 years old. It was a lovely weekend-long celebration, orchestrated largely by my sweet husband. Events kicked off with lunch with my mom and step-dad on Friday, followed by a surprise massage appointment in the afternoon. Yesterday I had a manicure and pedicure (also a surprise) followed by two hours of child-free knitting time at the yarn store. Today I got to sleep in, then my fabulous friends took me out for breakfast (along with another friend - it's her birthday tomorrow!) . Tonight brought a family party at my in-laws house, complete with some of my favorite foods, delicious Red Velvet cake, and "Happy Birthday" being sung by everyone but most loudly by Landon in his sweet little voice. I love birthdays, and I think that this one ranks right up there in my favorites of all time. I just felt so thought-about and cared-for all weekend. It sure is nice to feel so special.
