birthday joys

I ended up having a pretty great birthday this year.  Dan really wanted it to be nice even though we are flat broke.  We ate sub sandwiches with my parents and they brought a small ice cream cake (I only went a little over my calories for the day).  Then Maya surprised me by playing Happy Birthday for me on her violin.  She's been taking lessons for a few weeks now and learned to play that for me in secret.

Happy, happy birthday, Steph!!

Sounds like it was total fun, and a violin recital....from a kiddie or your own - how wonderful is that!

Hope it's a reallly good year for you :)
