I have been sitting here for a while trying to figure out how to write this and how to thank you all for your overwhelming generousity. But I have a serious case of baby brain and I just can't seem to come up with the right words.<br><br>
I will tell you a little about my day yesterday. About a month or so ago Theia told me she had a plan to take me to NYC for the day, just a pre-baby girls day. But she refused to provide even one detail. I assumed Maria would somehow be involved since it was NYC. She arrives at my house with my friend Jen (some of you met her in Philly, she ran the 8K). We get to the train station, some lady is yelling at us as we approach the train and I realize it is Solar! We arrive at Maria's fabulous pad and I am just giddy! Then the doorbell rings, she opens it and there is Auntie Moe. I couldn't even say hello, I just started crying! I can't even tell you how special I felt. Maria laid out the day's plan. We had lunch at Alice's Tea cup, a lovely afternoon tea with scones, sandwiches, tea and dessert. We then headed off to a spa where I was treated to a maternity massage (holy smokes it was fabulous) and a pedi. We did some shopping after (yeah popcorn store) and ended up back at Maria's for some dinner and fabulous cupcakes.<br><br>
To top my day off they presented me with 2 lovely gift bags. I open the card and a piece of paper falls out. I open it and it has a picture of the cadilac of jogging strollers and says one is waiting for me at my local running store. Again, baby brain, I reread it several times. I was absolutely blown away!!! When I finally got my senses about me again I looked through the rest of the bags, lovely clothes, a blankie, a brag book, and a handmade Katholeenine original bunny. I can not even begin to tell you how touched I am by the generousity you have all shown me. I can't stop smiling and I have looked at the gifts a dozen times already (and will be calling the store soon to go get my BOB!!). I couldn't even sleep last night, I kept thinking about how wonderful my 30's are and how much it means to me that you would do something so wonderful for me. And not just by giving me a fabulous gift, but by the PMs and emails and posts checking on me and baby E, by the words of wisdom you all have shared and by the comfort that I always have a place to go when I need friends to share with.<br><br>
So from the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much. I love and appreciate you all!!!
