Though I don’t have any pictures from my 27th birthday celebration yesterday, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who made my day special. I spent most of the day working (sadly!). Your birthday really makes you aware of just how many people care about you. Between Minnesota friends and family and Utah friends and “family”, I stayed pretty busy yesterday.
After work I went to Jeff and Erin’s house for dinner- they are so great to me, I’m grateful to have them here in Utah. They are by far the people that make me feel at home and a part of a family. Dinner was delicious and was followed by an banana pie from Hawaii and a present. I am going to miss living with them, but hope we can still keep in close touch.
After dinner, I planned a low key hang out at my friend Jess’s house, and was shocked by how many people wanted to hang out and have a beer on a Monday night, with work looming the next day. I spent the rest of the night with 8-9 of my friends– we kept it low key and went to main street for a beer.
It was so nice to hear from all of you in Minnesota- I’m sorry I couldn’t be there to be with you! But know that my Utah friends and family really made me feel at home here.
