     Friday, May 11th, was my birthday! To say it was a great day would be an understatement. I had what I am dubbing a 'Progressive Birthday'. I woke up to find a card and present from the dog, I lad lunch and more presents with my parents who came to visit. While I was at lunch my BFF snuck in and hung up a glittery "Feliz Cumpleanos" banner in my window and boyfriend also brought home tons of balloons. Then Rachel and I headed for pedicures and coffee. I got to spend extra time with Geoff who came home early, and he gave me the best present ever... a MacBook Air! I was so speechless and shocked, there were almost tears. I can't believe how ancient and slow my original MacBook was compared to this! Then we had a lovely dinner with friends at Ecco (a delicious Italian restaurant at The Camp) followed by drinks and cake (an adorable Susie Cakes celebration cake!) back at our house. All day there was something and someone one and I felt so special and loved. Honestly one of my best birthdays yet. A huge "Thank You!" to everyone who was a part of it, sent me a birthday message and just thought of me that day.
