I awoke at 6:40am to a text from Noah at midnight wishing me happy birthday. It was nice having him be the first person to hear it from, even if it came from thousands of miles around the world. As soon as I texted him back he called and I spent the next 20 minuets on the phone with him from the kitchen. I was so happy and excited I was just gushing. He kept laughing saying he loves that I love my birthday so much and that I make it such a point to be a celebration with all my friends. He was sweet and it was nice catching up with him before heading to work.
Before I'd even left this morning I'd received numerous heartfelt messages from the people who matter most. Lana, Misty, My Parents, The Hayden Family. I couldn't stop smiling. This of cours was heightened when I arrived to work and my co-workers presented me with a DSW gift card (an appropriate and all-too-hilarious gift) to purchase myself a new pair of shoes. The card was funny and the whole gesture was just too sweet. My other co-worker had a bracelet made for me that I'm wearing as I type this. Needless to say I'm more than grateful for all the warm gestures.
The text messages that keep coming through have also been sweet. I'm trying to keep on top of them by responding as soon as they come through. So many thoughtful words and lots of excitement about tomorrow. In addition I received a great text from Danny. It was casual, meaningful, and hilarious. We talked back and forth for a few minutes in honesty for the first time in months. To add to the perfectness of today, it just felt great getting things right with him. It put me back on even ground.
I'm looking forward to this evening. Annie, Alex, and I have been talking about going out in Canton tonight. I have party prepartions to tackle after work today. Dad and I are swinging by the liquor store once I'm off and I still have about 50-75 more jello shots to make. But after that I'm all for celebrating. It sounds like a bunch of the girls are up for going out as well so hopefully we can make a night of it!
Anyway! I have to go search the internet and see what we're doing for lunch. Despite making that horrible mistake with lunch last week, I've been made the decision maker today since it's my birthday. Oh, the little things!
Can't wait to see how the rest of this day plays out. I can't wait to be with all the people I love. I'm certainly in one of those over-the-top, I-love-everyone moods today. Grateful, grateful, grateful.
