A good day

I had a very nice day today for my 27th birthday (oh, that sounds old!) Stuart was speaking at a church first thing so I spent the morning with my mom and dad which was very good and relaxing. Later in the afternoon we went to a lecture that Stuart was doing about human trafficking for his work and then Stu's parents and the rest of us all went back to Mom and Dad's for a little party and some very good cake. It was really wonderful to be all together and especially nice to be with my parents on my birthday for the first time in six years I think! I should also mention that the weather was gorgeous (not quiet +20 though like in Regina!) and very spring feeling - flowers are out all over the place!

Miss you, and would have loved to celebrate the day with you, but very glad that you could be with mom and dad. that is so special.
i went for a beautiful canoe paddle on the river today. The Starphoneix took a picture, so we'll see if it gets in...I always thought Cleo might be famous (she has to keep up with the publicity that oscaroo gets).
Love you lots,

Happy (belated) birthday, Julie! Sounds like you had a great day.

We had the pleasure of hosting your niece, Cleo this weekend. She is much loved by all the Cappellos (and as a general rule, Jacob & I don't even like dogs!). I was so excited to hear you got a food processor, because I'm thinking of asking for one for my birthday. I'm going to check out the link you posted - it seems that there are a lot of choices out there!

Take care & a warm hello to all the Broten-Noble clan,

Happy Belated Bday Julianne! Sounds like you had a lovely day. Glad to hear the flowers were in bloom for your special day! Flowers are not quite out in Calgary yet - in fact there are forecasts of snow tonight! Yikes! Kudos on the great job posting so regularily - I always enjoy checking in. Lots of love!

How great to hear from you - hope you and the fam are all doing well. Thanks for commenting - njb tells me you almost got drawn into the hot Crocs debate! I love knowing that you read :)
I recently some very cute winter pics of Mira and Jacob with Cleo!
The food processor is excellent so far - Stu and I are processing veg like mad just to see how quick it is! I could give more advice in a few weeks when I have been able to try out different recipes. So far I really like it!
Hi to Mike and the wee ones as well - Take care - julie :)

Hi Ms L
Thanks for the note and the birthday wishes :) Lovely to hear from you. Yes, it was a very nice day. Shame it only comes once a year! Last night we watched some Grey's (Stu tolerated it since it was my birthday!) and I thought of you and your McDreamy encounter :)
Hope spring arrives in Cow Town soon!
Hugs to you - J :)
