I just want to publicly thank those individuals who made my 36th birthday party a smashing success! I am so blessed!
Jennifer - It was so nice to finally get to spend some qaulity time with you! Thank you for the wonderfully delicious dinner! I loved that you got to come.
Monica - Thank you so much for the itunes gift card. I went shopping this morning and I'm loving all the new music I got! Also, your hot tub rocks! I love going to your house. You truly have the gift of hospitality and I always feel welcome when I'm there.
Francesca - What can I say? You are my density. You hear that, Billy, not you anymore, it's me! Thanks for the rockin' drummer t-shirt. I will wear it with pride! Last night was so much fun, I really enjoyed it.
Becky - I'm so glad you were able to come last night. I really enjoyed being around "just Becky" for a few hours! You make me smile. Thanks for all the natural goodies. You know I love that stuff! Oh, and thanks (I think) for keeping a photographic record of the whole thing.
Brandi - Even though you only got your feet wet, it felt like you were in that hot tub with us all night! You are so much fun! Thank you for the itunes gift card. I'm doing my best to fill that thing up!
Erica - As always, you were the life of the party and it wouldn't have been the same without you! Thank you so much for the Billy Collins poetry book. I've already found my favorite and I'm posting it for all the world to see:
Smokey the Bear heads
into the autumn woods
with a red can of gasoline
and a box of wooden matches
His ranger's hat is cocked
at a disturbing angle.
His brown fur gleams
under the high sun
as his paws, the size
of catcher's mitts,
crackle into the distance.
He is sick of dispensing
warnings to the careless,
the half-wit camper,
the dumbbell hiker.
He is going to show them
how a professional does it.
by Billy Collins
from The Apple That Astonished Paris
Thanks girls! This really is turning out to be a month of favor for me! I am blessed! Pictures are coming soon!
