Yesterday I turned 31.
I should start by telling you that I am more than a weeeee bit obsessed with my own birthday. I think it's fun to have a day (or a week) to celebrate myself.

I am also lucky enough to be spoiled by the people around me, so I really get to enjoy my time.

It started off with a surprise night out on Tuesday - birthday eve. Maura made the plans. Mikki joined. We got in the car and drove downtown...and with Mikki's hands pressed over my eyes so I couldn't see, we pulled into the House of Blues.

The surprise was a Missy Higgins concert (and a very very tasty dinner at the HOB - thank you Mikki). It couldn't have been more perfect. Maura knows me well. Set the mood for a wonderful birthday just right.

On Wednesday, my actual birthday, I was supposed to go on a field trip with Serenity's school, but due to a flooded road it was canceled.

So, I went to borders and bought myself a book...Change of Heart by Jody Picoult. I stayed there, drank coffee and read for three hours.
I stopped at Kohls and bought myself some new shirts.

I got a job offer.

I had dinner with some of the most cherished people to me in my life.

We all had fancy desserts from Sweet Melissa's. ( This one was just for me!)

I got presents that hit at the core of me from Maura, plus Veronica and the kids.

I feel loved.
I love people.
I love life.
And I'm happy.
That's what wishes are made of.
