a blessed birthday

So I don't actually turn 23 until the 9th, but due to scheduling restrictions we celebrated with my family today.

Buca di Beppo was on the menu, and my parents, sister, and grandmas (plus me and Jon) were in attendance. I was given some of the best birthday presents I've ever received, including pumpkin flavored/scented things, my Sseko sandals and a Haitian Creation purse:

The Sseko (pronounced say-ko) sandals help pay for university tuition of Ugandan women whereas the Haitian Creation purse profits the Haitian woman who makes it. These particular presents were so wonderful because I knew they benefited deserving women half a world away. I highly encourage you to consider giving gifts with a deeper meaning such as these to the women in your lives this holiday season. They will love you for it.
