Yesterday was nothing like I expected...it was better.
and nothing went according to plan, but made it that much sweeter.
I received two free starbucks, without asking. Thank you Chris Yourdan.
Flowers and a card from Elisa, who is like my big sister, they were gorgeous!
and the Sun was shining. All day.
The plan for the night was to go to olive garden, ice skate, then manhunt.
but none of those things went the way I thought they might...
It was an HOUR wait at every single restaurant we went to, amidst the little options we have in tri-town.
So we ended up going to Mongolian, which was just as wonderful!
An ethnic birthday.
And it was so simple, yet so lovely. Just the people who I care about so much, surrounding a small table in a quaint little mongolian restaurant. That's how birthday's should be.
My dad got me this BEAUTIFUL gold, sapphire ring. It's, one of the best gifts I've ever receiven.
And my dear abigail got me canvasses and paint. The gifts I really wanted in my heart, yet didn't tell anyone about.
She's a keeper.
We then we're about to go ice skating, only to find out that the next session started a half an hour before manhunt was suppose to go on.
So, we decided to skip ice skating, and chill at my house before the hunt.
Which was just as fun. We ate cake, talked, and laughed.
oh and I can't forget birthday cake ice cream. THE best.
Then manhunt was INSANE.
Behind clearwater to Lawrence Scott Park.
Jumping into bushes, running, hiding behind buildings, I felt like a true fugitive.
Which was exhilarating.
I ALMOST got caught when I slipped on an icy driveway hill, and tumbled down.
And I received lovely bruises and scratches, the road's birthday present to me.
But I ran free and made it there in one piece
Suffice to say, this 18th birthday was a success.
How lovely are the friends that surround me, who make my days a joy to live.
Along with My Jesus.
Thank you Lord for the blessings you place on my life, how dear they are to me.
