Happy birthday to me

No, it's not today, it was last week, though I'm still feeling the birthday love. Plus, I turned 25 for the upteenth time, and I really enjoy being 25.

I am grateful from all the birthday wishes from friends and family. Remember my friend Ellyn? She made this beautiful card:

And the Big Guy had these wonderful earrings made for me. Insider info: we have a very talented jeweler in the family who does custom work and one-of-a-kind pieces. The earrings have a wavy leafy pattern and are made with white, rose and yellow gold. They are gorgeous!

This card just really melts my butter. It's from the Little Guy, obviously, and picked out by the Big Guy, obviously. One-year-old children just don't do well in the card store, you know? Anyways, the card features a mother and child decorating a cake together. This is really fitting, since the Little Guy enjoys "helping" me in the kitchen.

The inside shows a picture of the finished cake. Isn't that adorable?

Now, though, the focus is entirely on the Little Guy's upcoming birthday. That puts me right in the Entertainer/Hostess position, which thrills me to the core. That, and turning 25 again.
