Birthday Fun

I had a wonderful birthday today, despite the fact that I didn't get home until 9:00 p.m.

The Bay was quite misty, and while that doesn't make for the prettiest photos, it is beautiful in its own misty way.

 Steve gave a knitting book that I cant wait to dig into, plus a Wawa gift card!  Oh, and he put money on my favorite coffee shop account too, which was a nice surprise as well.

 Melissa stayed over last night, and her gift was waiting for me when I got up this morning.  I think these will look great with my new kitchen color, don't you?  Plus, she surprised me by coming to school on my lunch break and bringing me a birthday balloon!

 This card just warms my heart.  I am such a lucky mama.

 My students sang to me in every bell today, my coworkers bought me lunch, my mom brought me a Diet Coke to help me make it through my class, and when I got home, I opened the gift that Meredith had sent me!  She sent me a spa gift: beeswax candles, a knitted washcloth, a knitted soap, chai tea bath sachets, and a pair of handwarmers, all handmade by her!  

 It was definitely a wonderful birthday.  And tomorrow is Friday!
