Today is my 26th birthday!  It couldn't be off to a better start... I came home from school last night to find this sweet surprise waiting for me from my husband...

And right after I was telling his sister that he never buys me flowers!  Since I have no willpower, I also opened my present last night... A gift card to stock up on fall essentials & the cutest pair of earrings (that hubby picked out all on his own, which I love the most!)

Then this morning, I hit the road bright & early for a run through my old neighborhood.  I grew up right behind the Harris Y, but can't remember the last time I ran through those neighboring streets.  It was really fun to see all the houses, and wonder if the families I used to babysit for still lived there... Not to mention I think that area has the most hills (and best wooded setting) of anywhere in Charlotte.  Very fun & nostalgic start to my day!

Now it is back to work for a little while, then off to my in-law's for a birthday dinner!  Jeff & I have a date night planned for tomorrow, a weekend brunch (and of course, Sarah's amazing engagement party on Saturday night!), and more birthday celebrating with my parents, grandparents, & sister on Sunday evening.  I am the luckiest! 


  1. Happy Birthday!!!! Hope it's a great one!
