They came bearing gifts...and food.

I love my birthday.
And it was yesterday.
I got phone calls, text messages, e-cards, emails and visitors.
I can always count on hearing from certain people. A couple of them I usually hear from only once or twice a year.
And many of them are constants in my life.
It was a busy, busy day, but first thing in the morning Jody and Amy stopped over for coffee.
They brought applesauce cake and almond scones.
And gifts.
I got this super cute camera strap from Jody...

And Amy the artist.
I can't tell you how this makes my heart feel...

The gifts were incredible, but I must say their presence on a daily basis means even more.
Love them.
Oh, and how I love this other "little" gift from my parents and Paul's parents...

I think it officially makes me a chef?
Yeah, kinda like the new painting makes me an artist?
