Birthday Recap!


First of all, thank you so very much for all the well wishes on my birthday! I really appreciate it. It meant a lot to me :)



As you probably gathered from my last post, I started out the day very sad... in fact, my wonderful hubby went out and brought back these beautiful flowers for me and I broke down and started crying! He couldn't understand why and that's when (in between sobs) I explained that I miss my Mami and my Mom and I so wish they were still here to celebrate another year of my life... it just always gets to me, especially on special days like this! :(

I told my family and BFF's that I wanted to go to my favorite restaurant, CVI.CHE 105 in Downtown Miami. I had already introduced most of them to this wonderful Peruvian place, but for a few, it was their first time and I think they're hooked! LOL! We had a group of 12 and we ate -- a lot! It was all about the food! YUM!



I spent a wonderful evening with family... here's my step dad and I (doesn't he look great? I am so happy that he has done so well after chemo and all!) I love him so much!



And these are my sweet aunts (my Mom's sisters), who hold a part of my heart!



My BFF and her hubby -- so lucky to have them in our lives!!!



My awesome honey bunny who made my birthday very special indeed!



I also opened some presents :) I received everything on my wish list... My mother-in-law bought me the 7Gypsies photo carousel. My honey got me LOTS of goodies, including a Ruche gift certificate and some milk glass planters I wanted. Here I am with my fab new Fuji Instax mini camera from my BFF -- love it!!!



There are so many other photos, but I just included a few here for you to see...

I am a lucky girl and I am truly BLESSED...

I'll be back soon with my finished Halloween banner!!!
