Last Thursday, May 18 was my 41st birthday!
I've been blessed with a small group of loyal friends, including Emily, Amanda, Sarah, and Peggie, who have been important parts of my life for the last 10-25 years. All of them, as well as my mom and Tal's mom, sent me birthday cards that made my day extra special:

Instead of eating steak and birthday cake, I watched Tal change my flat tire (Thanks, Tal!) and then waited at the car dealership while the hole in my tire got patched. We didn't get home until 8:30 PM.
While Tal changed my tire, Savannah and Hadley did cartwheels and played with water in our front yard:
This evening (one week after my birthday) our family finally celebrated my birthday at Texas Roadhouse. The food was delicious, and I enjoyed not having to cook or clean-up dinner tonight. My birthday dinner was worth the wait!
