If anyone figures out how to stop time from going by so blinkin' fast, please let me know! I can't believe my birthday cruised by again. And this time, Ry kept reminding me that now I'm 'in my 30's'. Thanks babe. Love ya too! But 31 feels like a good number! And I know it is going to mean another year of amazingness and lots of change, which I've realized is what I thrive on.

I want to thank everyone that thought of me this year. I felt so over-the-top loved, and I LOVED it! The facebook messages, the texts, the phone calls, the birthday cakes... oh, the birthday cakes... the presents, the hugs, the kisses.  I even had a friend yell 'happy birthday' down the street from his truck. So nice...

And just so you know how spoiled I truly was: (and keep in mind it was Ryan's birthday too, so most of these were double-duty)

Birthday Cake #1 - Apple caramel pie - mmm

Birthday Cake #2 - Black forest cake - deadly!

Birthday Cake #3 - Cupcakes - perfect and kept me going for days

Birthday Cake #4 - Cheesecake - creamy goodness

Birthday Cake #5 - Angel food cake with whipping cream and strawberries - the nellie-birthday classic


Thank you from the bottom of my heart for my loving friends and family. I don't think I could be any luckier in love when it comes to all of you. x0
