What a Surprise!

It all adds up now. The Facebook messages, the hushed phone calls, Megan's strange behavior. For the past month Brewier, Jessica and Megan have been working on a surprise party for me! Saturday night Brewier told me to get dressed up and we'd go down to Park Avenue and look at lights. I put on my new dress and leopard shoes, and just as we were about to leave, Renee called to see if we wanted to stop by for Christmas cookies. Never one to turn down a visit with a friend, I said, "Sure!"
When I arrived Olivia escorted me to the back patio, which had been transformed to look like my, "party," pinterest board, and was full of my closest friends. Megans first words to me were, "Mom. I have lied so much to you this past week." :)

Brewier scanned old photos, and Megan made this collage from them.

Blowing out the candles, after a very upbeat, "Happy Birthday," song, led by Brewier.

Jessica bought the December issue of Vogue, to use as a guest book. Brilliant!!
