Oh I had a wonderful Birthday with my family. We went to watch my daughter play basket ball and then went out to dinner. I loved my presents: a side table from Ikea, kitchen shelves and some clothes from my hubby; Godiva, money, pitcher and a beautiful book from my parents; vintage spice jars from my sister; and the most fantastic shoes from the kids. I am blessed and I am truly loved! Here are some pictures from the day....
