My husband is taking me away for my birthday on Tuesday.I have been looking forward to this and our time alone as a couple for months. Last night we had our family birthday party for my son and myself. Among the gifts I received was the beautiful Nana tea cup shown at the right hand of the page from my son and daughter in law, my three year old grandson saying the prayer before dinner and my husband and mother cooking all day for us all of our favorites. I felt VERY LOVED!My husband gave me a beautiful leather scrap album that I will share with you at another time. It is stunning and a complete surprise. I did n0t expect anything last night from him as we always celebrate my birthday on the actual date of my birthday when we are away.I am watching Mamma Mia (the gift from Hannah and Pat)with my daughter today..I can't wait as I am a big Abba fan and need some time with my Hannah. I am taking my new book(gift from Ede) by author Anne Lamott with me on vacation. This is a book and author that my son Ede introduced me to a year ago. We both LOVE the way she writes..and today I going to Archievers and pick out albums (gift from my Mama) and when I return home I can make the trip to JoAnne Fabrics and pick out the new paper punch and paints I have been wanting (gift from my other son and daughter in law).
None of this had anything to do with what we are working on this week. I just had a grateful heart and an overwhelming desire to share all of this with you. Thanks for checking in.
Don't forget to read the post BELOW..as that is the real post today.
