Getting a card always makes me smile. Getting one that's traveled across the Pacific Ocean makes me beam.
Laughing with students and co-workers makes any day better. Being serenaded by them makes for an unforgettable experience.
Skyping with loved ones is a regular treat. Listening to my 3 year old niece say Happy Birthday, Aunt Jenn is extra sweet.
All in all it's been a very special and memorable birthday weekend. Thank you, everyone! xo
