Happy Birthday to Me :)
I have to say that this birthday has been one of the best. :) My family actually did most of the celebrations yesterday because none of us had work off today, but that was fine with me. I received several wonderful gifts from my family, and we had peach shortcake, which was delicious! Then today I was completely overwhelmed by all of the birthday wishes I received through Facebook, text, personal wishes at work and home, and phone calls from my amazing friends and family. It was such a wonderful surprise to see how many people were thinking about me today and to read the kind things they wrote to me. I got funny comments ("You are finally legal and can do ... legal ... stuff ..." by Jill or "Now that you are officially of age - you must go watch a Disney movie!" by Allie :)) and serious comments ("Hope your day is amazing ... just like you!" by Stephanie or "Happy birthday! You definitely deserve it!" by Heather or "Wishing you the happiest of birthdays and a fantastic year ahead" by Aunt Lori), and I loved them all! What did I do to deserve such incredible people in my life? Then my family and I rounded everything off by setting off one of those newly-legalized aerial fireworks just minutes ago. I have always wished that just once I could be right underneath one of those, and now that wish has been fulfilled, and it was super cool! And now I can say that I actually got fireworks on my birthday! :) It has been such a wonderful birthday! Thanks to all my amazing friends and family out there who made it so wonderful! Love you all!
