The Magical Year

I was told on Friday, my birthday, that 28 is a magical year. Astrologically - important things happen on your 28th, 56th, and 84th birthdays. I am hoping that this is true. I mean, who wouldn't want a magical, important year?

The entire birthday weekend was incredible. I really have some amazing, loving friends who are always there for me. Came into my station at the salon entirely decorated, with gifts and balloons and confetti and a huge tasty cupcake. Went out for drinks with friends Friday night and had a party at my parent's place on Saturday night.

The amazing bag Sarah made for me. It's perfect for carting around my clippers and trimmers and color supplies for when I make hair house calls. And I do make house calls, if anyone is interested!

The other incredible bag I received for my birthday: A gorgeous new Coach handbag from my parents. Many thanks to all the random women who looked my age at the store that my mother stopped and asked their for their opinion. You all chose beautifully. I love it!

Calla Lilys from Crystal, along with some wine and chocolate. You cannot go wrong with that.


Music has been a driving force in my life and I am now set for awhile. iTunes gift cards from Aja, Mike and the girls at the salon. Anyone got music suggestions?

Stock up for iTunes

Also from Sarah, this inventive writer's journal, with tabs for all the inital areas of story writing.

Either my friends know of my love for candles and all good smelling things or our place smells and they are trying to tell us something. I am going for the former. Candles from Kristie, Aja and Lindsay. The reed diffuser is from Kristie as well.

Plethora of candles

Lindsay got me a Sensy candle warmer and two different scents for it.

Kate and Joe got Mike and I (The Freys) concert tickets to The Fray. Cute and definitely something I will throughly enjoy.

From my brother and his girlfriend, a gift card to Bed, Bath and beyond and from one of the girls at work, a Starbucks card.

Also not photographed, earrings from Dede to grow my earring collection, wine and cds from Aja, moisturizer and face wash from my parents.

So friends, thank you so much for helping me celebrate. I am so very blessed to have you all in my life and look forward to helping you celebrate your next birthday.

Here comes the magical year. I hope to capture as much of the magic as possible.
