Birthday Love

February 4, 2010

I’m a huge birthday fan. I love ’em. When I was growing up, my parents did a great job making my birthday a “season,” not just a day. (I might have been really really loved.) So, when other people have birthdays, I get very excited. This excitement for my coworkers’ birthdays is translated into a handmade card that everyone in the office signs, and we give the birthday coworker the card and a dessert on that day. This has been going on ever since I started working at my current job, and everyone tells me they love it.

I guess you could say I’m the unofficial card-maker/birthday planner for our department. I actually enjoy it!

Well, my birthday is this Saturday, and my coworkers did something very sweet for me today. Instead of passing around a card and signing it, each person made their own card for me and wrote a special note! Carolyn, the coworker that thought of it, said, “You always make cards for us, so we thought we’d all make one for you.”

Are you crying yet because I was! Isn’t that sweet?? I also got an awesome carrot cake with icing made from scratch! I love my sweet office! And, I’m so impressed with their creativity!!

Other birthday details after the house tour this weekend!

    They just feel bad for you because you’re getting so disgustingly old.
