Best. Birthday. Ever!


Sunday was my 35th birthday.  (35, I can’t believe it – when did I become such an adult?)  It was a wonderful birthday, filled with wonderful friends and prizes for me.  This year, more than ever, it was really clear to me how blessed I am.

So, what kind of wonderful gifts from wonderful people did I receive?

But, as much as I love and appreciate each and every gift that I received for my birthday, there is one that stands above the rest. And that’s this one:
Best Birthday Ever

Yes, after almost seven years together, Gist and I eloped on my birthday.  We’re married!
