I love birthdays, all birthdays. It's the perfect opportunity to tell and show how vitally important to you someone is-- how blessed you are to share life with them, and all that fun, mushy stuff we don't hear on a regular basis sometimes. August is an especially wonderful month for birthdays because there are no other holidays nearby to rain on the parade, so to speak.
Today happens to be my birthday, which is very exciting for me. After all, I wait all year for it!
I've been and will continue to celebrate all week (heck, all month for sure, all year if I can swing that by the hubby!), but today has been just wonderful so far.
My sweet hubby, CC, started the day with this little blue box from a certain well-known store...
He won at work a teardrop necklace from Tiffany for me! I don't care if it was free; he thought of me and I love it!
He also got me these shoes I've been drooling over for Fall...
Aren't they cute? I can't wait to wear them... maybe tomorrow, even if it's supposed to be five thousand gagillion degrees outside.
Our Senior Pastor, Chuck, as well as my boss, David, have been on sabbatical all summer and have finally returned...
This is Chuck during his sermon from this morning that we recorded for the other campus. I know he didn't plan it this way, but I say that his and David's return are wonderful birthday presents this year! I love having them around, so I'm glad they're back.
The rest of the day is going well. Ate lunch with coworker buddies, and I get to see Chris for dinner tonight before rehearsal. Friends dropping by work, and more friends to see tonight and this week-- such a fun time!
My only wish is for a chocolate cupcake, but I'm pretty sure that'll be happening tonight, so that's just a matter of waiting for it.
Don't you just love birthdays?!
