Please excuse the puffy face and crazy hair. These photo were taken around 9:00am after a long night of having a GREAT time.
Eleven of my closest friends and I went yurt camping in the woods. When we arrived we were in disbelief that this place was real. It has to be one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. It was so peaceful.
I woke early on my birthday and went around the camp and started cleaning up from the night before. Then I went into the kitchen yurt were I put on music and started washing dishes. My Jarod joined me about fifteen minutes later and made me one of his "Hermann" drinks (I would love to share this drink with you, but it is not mine to share.)
Slowly the rest of my friends joined us in the kitchen yurt to cook my birthday breakfast. After we ate we sat around chatting. Later, Erin came in and handed me a note and the note said...
I ran into the sleeping yurt. As I walk in I said "I hope its a chicken bag," but instead it was another note with a hint on it. There were a lot of little notes that took me to different places around camp until I was at the Elf Chapel. BTW-- one of the hints was to beet on a drum!!! I love my friends!
Once we all ran down the hill to the Elf Chapel-- I had everyone go up first and then I followed.
A CHICKEN BAG!!!!! I have wanted this bag for about two years now. Every time I see it, I tell Erin and Laurel that I want it, but I would never buy it for myself.
Inside the chicken bag were little notes from all my friends. Not just notes, but wishes. Each friend wrote me a wish. I started to read them myself, but I started crying and Jarod had to take over for me. Thank you Jarod!
This is my family and I love them with all my heart.
