Best Birthday Ever

Friday afternoon, my dad insisted I go with him to run errands. And run we did. Store after store with no real purchases. (I should have known something was up when my father wanted to go try shoes on.) I got cranky as I was near death from starvation, having eaten so little in anticipation of the big seafood dinner we were going out for.

Except we weren't going out to dinner.

When we finally got home, I walked into a house full of family and friends waiting to surprise me for my birthday. It was crazy. People flew in, drove for hours, prepped massive amounts of food and generally shocked the daylights out of me. It was an amazing outpouring of love.

To everyone who was there, thank you so much for being a part of that very special night. I won't ever forget it!
