It's my birthday today, June 22nd (not telling the year)!! It is only 6:30 am, but I have already had an exceptional birthday. First up-my Knitters Treat Exchange box arrived yesterday. It is from Jan at tbd-dog lover, knitter. It was filled with lots of glorious stuff!! Thank you so much, Jan!!
It contains 2 boxes of Tazo tea(the orange is delish), 2 kinds of chocolate, 2 knitting mags, Bigelow hand cream, stitch markers and a lovely hand-dyed Tip-toe Sock Yarn in Nature. She also sent a teething ring for Miss Bella. She says thank you, too.
My BFF Kelly got me a box of goodies, too.
A lovely basket with a pattern, needles, and yarn to make a market bag, a mug filled with Lindt chocolate and scrapbook supplies. Thank you, Kelly!! Then it was off to Stella's, our favorite birthday restaurant!! They have a beautiful hand-blown glass sculpture there that hangs from the ceiling of the upstairs down through the floor.
The best thing about Stella's(besides the amazing food) is that on her birthday, every woman gets to take home one of the flowers. I have been patiently waiting for mine all year.
I promptly came home and hung it in my window!! We had a lovely time with friends and family. It was my daughter, Elizabeth's birthday, too.
We had great food and a wonderful chocolate cake!!
But, the best was being totally shocked as the clarinet player came upstairs and said he heard there was a birthday celebration. He then serenaded us with the most beautiful and romantic rendition of Happy Birthday I have ever heard!!
As you can see, we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was so lovely and soft, it put Bella to sleep!!
So far I have had a great birthday and it has barely started. We always joke that it is our birthday week so we can suck every bit of fun out of it!!! Tonight is a big event here in town we will all be going to. Yeah, the party never stops!! Time to relax and enjoy some of the lovely birthday tea.
