Twenty-seven. That is how old I am as of last Monday. On my birthday eve my parents hosted a little family party for me. Angel food cake and berries....my FAVORITE!
My birthday started out with a pedicure. Oh, so relaxing (sorry no pictures of that)! Next, was lunch with my mom, dad, and sister.
My parents watched Cora for the evening and Joel took me out on a date. We ate outside at a little cafe with live music. It was definitely a "happy" day!

While we were in Colorado, Cora...
...learned how to put her pacifier in her mouth and seemed quite proud of herself. Now, if she could just do it herself in the middle of the night!
...started sitting up all by herself. We have had a few face-plants since then when I wasn't paying attention.
this made my day...
As I flipped through the normal junk mail and bills, I was so excited to find this post card from one of my former students. I have had a first day of school ever since kindergarten! I don't miss the stress and busyness that first day brings, but I do miss those sweet little kindergarten faces coming through my door on that first day. School started this week and I am constantly wondering how my teacher-friends and former students are doing this year. I loved hearing from this sweet little girl. Now, back to my new job of being mom...which I LOVE!

There is nothing more refreshing than being in the mountains. We just got back from a vacation in Colorado. It is so beautiful there and the weather was fabulous (it sure beat the 100 degree heat here)!
