Some topics covered this week:

  • I have some really amazing friends at work. I arrived as usual at 7:30 am and was confronted by a balloon-encrusted, candy-strewn, feathered, bannered and disco-balled workstation. And then I was spoiled even further with presents and a London Fog! I am truly blessed; thank you – you know who you are!
  • I’ve already posted about the beautiful birthday treat my sister treated me to, but the rest of my family showered me with love as well. It makes turning 44 not such a big deal; thank you.
  • Our holiday is exactly what we needed. Everything is perfect and well, private. 🙂

Until next week, happy writing!
