Tuesday was my birthday and a particularly bad and stressful day at work. But the kindness of friends and family made it all better. A and R gave me a new digital camera (woohoo!!!) and took me out to dinner.

My friend and co-worker surprised me with this gorgeous bouquet. Purple and yellow is my favorite color combination.

My sister-in-law sent me this sweet butterfly bag full of tea and cookies.

And, on the way out to dinner, A spotted a rainbow in the sky. Except that it hadn't actually rained, so it was a sunbow! It was really amazing. R was thrilled because it was the first real rainbow he'd ever seen. On the way home from dinner, there was a HUGE orange full moon. How nice of God to send those big reminders of how much He loves me. ('Cause of course it was just for me, you know...) ;-)

I've been enjoying my new camera a whole lot. I can't wait to use it this weekend because it's our town's Town Day and Town Night, complete with fireworks.

In the meantime, here's an example of the high-quality shots I've been getting around the house. :-)
