so grateful

Thank you for all the kind words on my birthday! I'm always amazed at all the love recieved on birthdays and it reminds me how great my friends and family truly are. It was truly such a great day! In short, I had lunch with my co-workers, celebrated at the MGe Ice Cream Social, drank a couple beers with Whitnie at the Hofbrau House, drank a couple more beers and whiskey with Allie and Maggie at McCoys, and obviously ordered Empanada Mama too. It was quiet, but totally my style. The highlight of the night was definitely hearing Owen and Callie both sing me happy birthday on the phone!

Mallory comes this weekend and I'm so excited to continue to celebrate with her! Because, I mean, no one's birthday really lasts only a day! :)
