A weekend's worth of celebrating

Another year around the sun complete, and another year begun.
Celebrating began on  Thursday morning.  Kicking off the day with fresh-out-of-the-oven-homemade muffins made by a co-worker to enjoy during our weekly staff meeting at work, made the day just that much sweeter.

Friday morning (the actual day) I woke to 6.5 inches of snow and was very thankful that I had the day off!
A day of doing-what-I-want followed (cleaning, laundry, working out, a little crafting, skyping with a friend).

Dinner on Friday was fabulous!  We hit up Chester's  my favorite restaurant in town with BFFs Dave & JoLynn.

Dinner was followed with dessert at Dave & Jo Lynn's home (raspberry pie with Culver's ice cream, or hot fudge sundae or both).  Music, candles, a cozy room, good conversation.  Perfect.

While we were out, number one (and only) son stopped by.
He left me a note....

Saturday = more celebrating!
Mr. D and I plugged away on some of the house projects til 4pm.
Church at 5:30 (the kids and us) ... Mr. D playing drums this weekend.

Your love.
