One Eventful Weekend!

29 had the potential to be a hard one. But, thanks to my amazing family and roomies, it was a blast of a weekend!

A little ritual called commencement on Friday, followed by a bbq bash at the beach house started it all off just right.

My mom, Emily, Bethany, & Casey hung out for the whole weekend through till the actual day of my birth. We played, shopped, laid out, and ate.

On the evening of the 27th, we ate great sushi at Riptide and I was officially inducted into the locals club as my roomies gave me my first pair of Rainbows.

I had so much fun (even sitting through the extra long graduation) and it was so great to feel so loved! Our house is still donning fresh flowers and our counter is covered with newly washed vases since I finally got around to throwing out the dead ones. Thank you to everyone who wished me well! It meant so much to have loved ones near and far drop me a line!

Happy Birthday and Congrat's! You are amazing! I love you mom's comment...I can hear her saying it in my head, she's great! I think you are wonderful too! I saw our old GAP manager Andrea today (actually I see her about once a week b/c her daughter is in Brielle's preschool class, but today I saw her at Riverwoods) and it took me back a few years to our crazy days at the Gap. What a time we had! Thanks for being my friend!
