This year I’m away from family for my birthday, so I received my presents in the mail. I’ve had boxes from Kate Spade and Vera Bradley since last Thursday – wondering what they could be. I did have some items from there on my Amazon list, but I didn’t expect them. I was good, and waited until today to open everything. I thought I’d wait til I got home from work, since I tend not to leave much time for anything else in the morning – but I couldn’t stop myself. The only thing I saved for this afternoon was the package from my sis. And that was the only package that got an audible gasp when I opened it. She sent me the sequel to a mystery that I read a few months ago, and was totally ready to read the next one.
Now I’ve gotta run to my bday dinner!
edited to add:
the text of the card says:
I hope your day is wonderful. Do everything you can to enjoy this year. Go somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit. Take yourself on a shopping spree [once the car is paid off =)]. Only wear your favorite clothes. Take what you want. Tell people no when you don’t want to say yes. And enjoy your Mustang! You deserve it. I love you!
Also – after dinner, we went bowling, and I bowled 123 [my highest score of the 2000s].
Today was a good day.
