**'tackle hug' and huge thank you to Jena, iheartyou.

**All from my boyfriend, whom I adore and love and appreciate more than I can ever say.

*phew* Let's just say I was basically like this...

and certainly this..

But of course, it's not about the presents. It's the people I spent it with.
Of course my boyfriend, my family, and my friends who texted me (because they remembered)
Thank you.

And the people who I haven't met (in person), but made this day even better that it should have been..

First and foremost, the two people who made my birthday especially special:
These two make me smile, cry, laugh, everything in between. They are truly spectacular.
I'm so thankful and grateful and glad that I've gotten to know them. 

Also, I want to thank these amazing people who are my 
 twitter friends, blogger friends, or possibly both (and who I love unconditionally) 
that made me smile on my special day (:

And these people who greeted me 'Happy Birthday' when no one else remembered 
(also some twitter/blogger friends that I've come to know):

You all deserve this, from me:
I adore you guys, so freaking much.

All in all, my birthday was a great one!

Happy Weekend!
