Hobbit Day // Birthday Celebration

September 22nd was a great day. See below (photo heavy).

It was Hobbit Day (Bilbo and Frodo's shared birthday).

We spent the day outside enjoying the turning colors with my family. There was Celtic music coming from Michael's iPhone day long and a jig or two happened in the parking lot.

We made a pumpkin pie. We watched the opening scenes of The Fellowship of the Ring to prepare for....

...the best birthday party I've ever had. Michael spent ages planning a surprise Hobbitty birthday celebration with my family and friends. My heart was full with gratitude at all the blessings I have (and had) around me. We sat next to the willow tree with twinkling lights, sang songs, drank hot coffee, had multiple pies, ate stew, listened to a reading (Michael reading Bilbo's birthday speech) and danced with sparklers. Thank you again to those who helped my amazing husband plan and keep this a surprise, I'm so thankful.
