Birthday Blessings

Earlier this week, I had lots of help celebrating my birthday. First, my hubby cooked breakfast for us, complete with a candle in my biscuit! I got to open my present, which I thought was jewelry. Boy was I surprised (and pleased) to find an iPod nano! I can't wait to learn to use it!

My dear friend Joy gave me this gorgeous card. She knows how much I love pink! Isn't her flower beautiful? And the circle cutout to view it? Divine! (Joy, I love my sweet presents too! They are so "me!" Thank you so much!)


I also received this lovely card in the mail from my Texas friend, Julia. Don't those cupcakes look good enough to eat? (Unfortunately, we'd need a few more plates to accurate represent this year's number.) I love the glitter and that Chocolate polka dot paper- YUM!

Now to show you what my talented Mom made for me: an aquamarine (my birthstone) and Peruvian opal necklace with matching earrings. I think it is so pretty, and I love the heart toggle clasp.

She also made this amethyst necklace and earring set complete with rice pearls. I've already worn them both this week.

My sister surprised me with flowers at work (and I missed her because I had to sit in on a grant phone interview). My students surprised me with homemade brownies and lots of homemade cards. I am truly blessed! No matter how old I get, I'm going to follow my Dad's motto: another birthday sure beats the alternative!


Also, since we believe in "birthday season," I get to celebrate with my family later this week! (We celebrated with Logan's family last week.) Life is good!
