Birthday week!


Birthday week started on a tuesday night. The boyfriend brought home wine, chocolate cake and beautiful roses. Then at midnight I was surprised with the most beautiful vintage typewriter. Turquoise even! I was so surprised and so happy! We spent the night just hanging and watching tv shows. It was wonderful.

Then, wednesday, my actual birthday, I had a wonderful day at work with the kiddos, tons of running around and playing. Then I had a bday bbq at Laurelhurst park with a great group of friends. Then off to a bar for a couple more beers.

And lastly, I had a big bbq party at my parents house in Eugene! It was so fun. So many great friends came! I had a wonderful time! Then we went out to my favorite bar and danced the night away! I only took a few photos, but here they are.

Dex was pooped after all the fun. And I must say, so was I.
A wonderful birthday week!

a folding, umbrellalike, fabric device for allowing a person, to float down safely through the air from a great height.

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
