A Very Happy Birthday!

Saturday was my 28th birthday...and I can honestly say it was one of my best birthdays to date. On Friday night, a few of my closest friends took me out to dinner in Tempe. We ate a FANTASTIC meal, and then sat around and chatted for hours after we were finished. As far as girl's nights go, it just doesn't get any better than that.

Then, on Saturday morning, David made me a wonderful breakfast in bed...eggs, waffles, fruit, veggies, toast, juice...it was a feast! After that, he told me that he and Ava had been working for a long time the night before (while I was out with my friends) on my birthday gift. They led me into the kitchen, where a huge bouquet of pink roses was surrounded by "28 Reasons Why We Love You More Each Year".

How sweet is that?!

That afternoon, David took me shopping (I had requested quite a while ago that this be my gift...), and then he took me to a really nice dinner at Monti's. All in all, it was such a wonderful day. I think the best part about it was just the fact that David took the entire day off work! I am really grateful for all of the blessings in my life, and couldn't be happier with what the past 28 years have brought me. Anyhow...here are a few of my fave "Reasons..."(some from David, some from Ava...but it looks like Ava helped with the coloring). These were just too cute not to share!
