My Fabulous Birthday Gifts
My husband and kids took me to the Coach store. Wanna see what's inside???
We all picked this one out together. I love the shape. Our second choice was a pink one, but it was a little over the top.
My next gift from my family is my new black island for my kitchen. I've been wanting one since we moved in. I've seen several with marble tops and was going to settle for a white one, but then we found this one. I'm loving it.

I'm thrilled that I now have a place to hang cute towels. My husband swears that I just wanted the island to have something else to decorate. Well duh!
Check out these drawers. All of those utensils used to be in this crock with my wooden spoons. It's always driven my husband crazy.

I wish my entire house was this tidy. My dear great Aunt Ruth, who I adored, and had an incredible Victorian home in Iowa told me that her secret was "A place for everything and everything in it's place." I think I just have too much stuff. I wish she was still around to help me find a place for everything.

Our birthday candles.

My sweet next-door-neighbor gave me this darling Willow Tree birthday girl angel. I love it.
These beautiful silver bracelets are from Mark's family.
I also received a gift certificate to my favorite pedicure salon
and money. I hope to spend it tommorrow shopping with my girl. I love summer!
