As you may know, at the beginning of the month we went to Florida for a week. We had such a great time and are so thankful for everything John’s parents did for us while we were there. The day after we got back was my birthday. John had to go back to work already that day so I went out to lunch with my friend who lives two hours away and my mom. After lunch my mom and I went shopping at all the local shops and picked up a few things. She made me a delicious strawberry shortcake as well! Once John was done with work we went out to dinner with my brother and his family and my dad at the Italian restaurant that I work at. Afterwards my mom kindly watched Lincoln for about an hour so that we could go out for a quick drink on the Downtowner deck. It was lovely. I’ve been fighting off a cold since the day before we left Florida and it finally seems to be going away now. I had plans to write a different blog post today but since I’ve been so busy I will just post some photos from Florida and my birthday.
