A Birthday in Photos

To prepare for my quick jaunt to NYC courtesy of Big Hair Envy and her awesome readers, the day started out with my requisite stop at Stumptown Coffee Roasters for my iced Americano and croissant.  (And P.S. this Volvo sta-wag and bikes?  SO Portland.)

Little outdoor cafe action with the squad for lunch.  Those flowers are still on my desk and smell DELICIOUS.

I was on the phone and happened to look up to 8 faces like this peering over my cube wall wishing me a happy birthday.  The person on the other end of the phone didn't think it was as funny as I did.  But he just couldn't see the bunch of floating heads with no bodies attached. 

On my way home, I stopped to pick up Fisher from doggy daycare and attached to her leash was a prezzie from Wade & Jimmy--a hot little red IPod shuffle that I want to marry.  But more on SSG's birthday booty later (because hint:  SSG was SPOILED).

The day was peppered with phone calls and e-mails, text messages and mail from friends and family.  I don't know that I've ever felt so much love in one day!  I wrapped it up by spending the evening with a friend and wrote myself a nice long letter that reflected on last year and the year ahead.  SO many changes--big and small.  And so very much to be grateful for.

Thank you all again!  Have a fabulous weekend my lovlies!

I am so glad you had such a good birthday. I am a big believer in spoiling folks and getting spoiled on bdays. In fact, for myself I usually declare an entire bday week! Have a great Saturday!

I'm glad it was a good one. And let me say I was thrilled to hear that you had an iPod as I thought "Umm.. does she have an iPod???" Gotta love Wade and Jimmy! Always lookin' out for a gal.
