This past Saturday, your daddy gifted me with my very first surprise birthday party. It was on a rainy night in Center City when I thought we were just going out to a casual dinner with Mike and Scott. It was also on a totally unexpected year. (Who has surprise parties when they turn 37?)

While not all our friends could make it on this stormy night, it was truly a great surprise and a very fun evening filled with good people, good food and tequila. I feel extremely special and truly blessed to have such wonderful friends and a husband who loves me so much, that he wants to surprise me on a random birthday (not just the big ones).

If there is anything I can teach you in life, it’s to surround yourself with people who want to make you feel special on the random birthdays. Not just a life partner, but also your friends. It’s the best decision you will ever make for yourself. Good love + good friends = a wonderful life.
