How about a *non* pregnancy-related post! We had the first of my three birthday celebrations last weekend with my family. My two cousins on my dad’s side and their parents were out here visiting, and it was so much fun getting to see them again. I saw Ray about four years ago when he came out with his dad, but I don’t think I’ve seen Jacki since I last went out to California back in high school. It’s crazy how rarely we all get to see each other, but that’s what happens when you live on opposite sides of the country. It was fun meeting Jacki’s husband, Brandon, too. He’s really nice, and he and Joe got along really well. Now that Jacki and Brandon live out on the east coast, though, maybe we’ll get to see them more.
My grandpa came home from rehab for the day, which was nice. It was good to see him again. Joe and I haven’t been able to get up to Chattanooga as much lately, so it’s been a while It was especially nice because we celebrated Jacki and Brandon’s anniversary and my 29th birthday. I got some gift cards and a paper cutter with various blades, which I’m excited about using. I have some neat ideas for cards. And, Randy and my mom made a *delicious* chocolate cake. Yum.
I’m not a big fan of turning 29 (it *is* one year away from 30!), but I do love having three celebrations!
