Thank you, everyone, for my birthday.

I'm not going to lie. I love gifts. I love giving them and I really love getting them! I probably love gifts even more than the average person, so it's all I can do to contain my excitement about the sincerely kind and generous things I was given for my birthday this past weekend. Here are some of the clothes and accessories that may appear in my self-style photos in the near future:

Birthday shirts
Insanely thoughtful John Lenon shirt from Andrea. Forward Collective t-shirt designed, printed, and given to me by Kevin, Giselle, and Cami. THANK YOU!
Birthday necklaces
Beautiful black beaded F21 necklace from Patrice. Breathtaking 36 inch pearl necklace (!!!) from Hubs. Lovely purple hand beaded Ten-Thousand Villages necklace from Kaori and David. THANK YOU!
birthday bracelets
Stunning silver Tiffanys (!!!) bracelet from Hubs' mom. Awesome zebra bracelet from Abby. THANK YOU!
I'm still gushing about the fact that my friends went all out for my birthday. The costumes, the fancy dinner at Luby's, the house party. Gosh. I'm humbled to be able to call so many awesome people my friends, and I feel so blessed by all the birthday wishes y'all left me here on Adored Austin, on Facebook, and on Twitter. Truly, it was my best birthday, ever. Thank you, thank you, thank you, everyone!
