Thoroughly Spoiled

A birthday dinner at Granny Bogner's with Steve, Kaile, Sylvia and new friends Chad & Carlene

A big thank you to everyone who made my 23rd birthday one to remember. The day began with Steve bringing me breakfast and some freshly cut flowers from our garden, then once I got to work I was greeted with a platter of gooey cinnamon buns with flickering birthday candles and the staff serenaded me with "Happy Birthday". Many well-wishers came to visit me at the office, bearing gifts that warmed my heart (smarties and diet pepsi...yes, I am easy to please!) and thoughtful tokens of friendship (a beautiful frame with a hilarious picture from Jessica...thanks, Jess!). I received e-cards and phone calls from far-away friends and family, and I felt so loved and blessed. In the evening Steve took me out for dinner with the family to Granny Bogner's, a beautiful restaurant in an old heritage house in Penticton. Delicious food and delightful company. The festivies continued into the next day, too! On Wednesday night, the gals surprised me with a little birthday celebration at "The Sweet Tooth" and we just hung out and enjoyed some ice cream.
I was spoiled rotten by all of these great folks and I just want to say thank you to everyone who made my birthday something special. I really appreciate it!
