I slept in today since I was up late due to the sweet surprise "he" gave me last night.
After attending a meeting I decided to go to my favorite sushi restaurant to treat myself for my birthday. This restaurant is right between my home and my office. As soon as I wrapped up lunch and got in my car, my phone rang and it was a florist saying he had a delivery for me and was at my front door. I drove home and accepted a gorgeous flower arrangement from a good friend of mine who lives in Michigan right now. It was a lovely surprise and I'm so grateful for her thoughtfulness and the thoughtfulness of others in my life. I got quite a few emails, facebook posts, calls and text messages wishing me a happy birthday today, from family and friends as far away as Africa, Canada and England, and as close as just around the corner.
I went back to work for the afternoon. Then, after work, just impromptu, me and 3 of my work girlfriends headed out for a drink to a bar/restaurant I really like in my area. It just so happened that 2 of them had to be in my area after work an mentioned it in passing, and the third one was also free. Another friend of mine also called around then and joined us to celebrate my birthday. It was simple and fun and they treated me which was also really nice of them. I am grateful for those moments you don't plan for but somehow turn out to be perfect.
My cousin and I are close to finalizing our vacation plans and I'm getting excited for our vacation. I can't wait! I know it will cost a lot but I also know somehow that money will appear before I need to spend it.
I feel like something great is in the works for me - I have had this feeling before and it's always been accurate. My appetite for travel is back, I feel a positive transition is about to occur in my life and this time, I feel like it will be positive permanently. I am so excited for what my future holds as I know it will be wonderful.
