Two of the best birthday presents - EVAH


Eighteen years ago today I received the most awesome-est birthday present evah - the best husband a girl could ask for. This weekend I arrived home with the second best birthday present - my Ethiopian princess. Now, I've gotten other great gifts through the years but none can rival these two. I am indeed richly blessed.
