I had my last 20-something birthday this week. Even though Casey is out of town with the army, I have some amazing friends that made sure I didn't have a lonely birthday :) I got my hair done (thanks, Becky, it's fabulous!)
My sister sent me these in the mail:
Remember how I told you my friend Jenn was visiting? (I'm so glad she was here over my birthday, with Casey gone and all. I would not liked to have been alone! Jenn made me this AMAZING Christmas tree skirt!!
tutorial at Tallgrass Prairie Studio. I am super impressed with Jenn's free-motioning. Mine is not that good compared to this :) Jenn, I absolutely love this! It inspired me to start a Christmas quilt, which I will share in the next couple of days :) I cannot wait to put it under our tree--our BIG tree in our new house, after several years of a tiny tree (which we loved anyway and have fond memories of :)
My parents and my in-laws both gave me money--what birthday girl doesn't like a little cash?? ;) I bought some dresses, some boots and these little cuties from, you guessed it, Anthropologie, who so kindly sends me a coupon every year for my birthday, haha!
I had an amazing birthday and felt so loved. I am so very thankful for my particular set of close friends and my loving family, both mine and Casey's, and grow more thankful for all of you with each passing year!
