A Golden Day

Indeed it was. I celebrated my birthday with those that love me everyday of my life, and smiled the whole day with every surprise. This beautiful brass trunk was a surprise gift from my husband. He knew I wanted it when we went looking this weekend, but I had no clue he was going to buy it for me behind my back...plus get me the camera.. I was also surprised to look up at work, and my 3 favorite people were there to show me love, with desserts that will have me crying for weeks. Then my co-workers bought me this strawberry cake from the Magnolia Bakery....awwww man. Mr. Styles and I also went out on a date Sunday which was the bizness yall. From the time we left, from the time we got back, and well into my dreams...I was on cloud 9 and I am still floating. There is nothing like being a loved woman. I am grateful to God for every year of life, and pray for many many many more decades to come.

What a feeling to be on 'Cloud 9' after that wonderful display of love from all of your family & friends! And since you are still feeling the love..I feel the Luther Vandross version of 'Happy Birthday' welling up in me--LOL!
