Around our house, we have birthday weekends. And I have to say, my first birthday celebrated in Colorado was pretty grand. Friday night Ryan and I went to a fancy-schmancy work party (free food? okay!). Saturday morning I had an early birthday brunch with some friends, a bit of relaxin' at home, then off to the alumni bar to watch our alma mater kick some bedlam booty! It. was. awesome. Sunday, we tried out a new church (thanks to the neat blogging world - Hi Hannah!), I grabbed coffee with a friend, and that night we made cookies and listened to Christmas music; all during a mini blizzard!
I'm very grateful for the friends we've made here in Denver.
And my far-away friends and family whom I miss dearly made me feel so loved. It was a great day, indeed.
