I'm having a wonderful birthday so far! Thanks to everyone who has sent me birthday wishes!! I got home late last night from Bunco at Aunt Gail's, and Zach and I ended up staying up later. Before we knew it, it was midnight and at 12:01, he said he was going to go ahead and give me one of my birthday presents. He played a slideshow on our TV that he had created of pics from our honeymoon. Our song, "Steady As We Go," by Dave Matthews Band, played in the background. It's really special to us because it was played during our first dance as husband and wife at our wedding. My other gift from him was tickets to La Nouba- Cirque du Soleil at Disney when we go on our trip in March! I have ALWAYS wanted to go to one of these shows! This would have been enough, but the tickets just happened to be front and center row seats! He definitely set the bar high for birthday gifts now that we're married!!
As if all this weren't enough, I got to work this morning and had gifts waiting on me. I got gift cards to restaurants from Bud, Mary Ann and Chris, and Mom, Dad and Jonathan got me a new Brighton watch! This afternoon as soon as I get home from work, I'm getting everything together and going to meet all the girls at the church to leave for our women's weekend retreat! I'm really looking forward to this and hope to post some great things about it when I get back!
