I am so thankful for such sweet friends and family that made me feel so loved on my birthday. The celebrations started at the end of last week. I enjoyed a birthday dinner with friends from work on Thursday, then Friday we had a birthday dinner with the Fletcher's family...a joint celebration for me and his brother John. Yesterday was a laid back but fun birthday. Fletcher made me a yummy breakfast, then I headed off to work.
It was a really busy day at work, but some of my co-workers decorated my car (and filled it with balloons) and then made me a special birthday brownie (brownies are my weakness at work).
Last night Fletcher and I went to a fun Italian restaurant for dinner then came home and watched a redbox movie. All day long I enjoyed text messages, phone calls, and voicemails from sweet friends and family. I also enjoyed opening lots of fun birthday packages that came in the mail. Things to wear, things to cook/bake with, and more! The most mysterious package was my package from Anna that needed to be refrigerated. I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the box! Let me introduce you to Shari's Berries...
They are the most DELICIOUS chocolate covered strawberries I have ever had! I am trying to make them last but they are so good I know they won't be around here long! Clearly my birthday was a great combination of sweet treats and sweet friends and family. Thank you to everyone who made my first birthday in the real world special! Here's to 23!
