Happy Birthday To Me!



Well,

Having a husband in the Navy can be hard. This is the second birthday in a row h
e has missed... BUT this year... I got an amazing gift from him, a house! Haha. Not your typical gift but I am not a typical girl either. I am grateful we will have a house of our own to live in when we move... I dont need a pretty necklace or a fancy date for my birthday... the house, that we will both use, is good enough for me. Besides it will keep me busy with all of the fun things I get to do to improve it.

This is probably the most appropriate gift for me, if you really think about it. Me
being hands on and handy around the house, a gift that I can customize to fit my own wants and needs is perfect! Besides how many girls my age can finish concrete, frame a house and shingle a roof?

Guess I married the right guy!

Although I dont get to cuddle with my husband and the end of this day or was able to hear him sing me happy birthday... today was a pretty good birthday. I could always be better... and it could always be worse.

Thank you to all of my friends! I appreciate your friendship and all that you do for me whether you know you do it or not. In some way you have helped make me into who I am now and I am so blessed for that. Thanks for everything you do and have done to make this last year a good one!

The birthday girl,
Dani

Happy Birthday Danielle! I'm glad you made the best of it. And, uh, yeah I'd say a house is quite a big birthday present! Congrats on finding it--sounds like everything fell into place.

Happy Birthday Danielle! I'm glad you were able to find the perfect house for you. And coming from this area, that sounds awesome. I hate housing prices here!

Good luck getting everything finished up and moved. I didn't know you were in the Seattle area. For some reason I thought you were in Spokane. Too bad you are moving so soon!
