when i think about life, i really like it. and there are certain things in life i especially enjoy. here are a few.

Venti Ice Water from Starbucks

Playing in the fountains downtown

passport stamps
although my passport is quite lonely, i really enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes from a passport stamp. its a little splotch of ink that signifies an entire trip to another nation.

diet coke
[this one is in Hebrew. which is always a plus]

my cammy cam. my handy-dandy camera, oh its so faithful

crossword puzzles
oh my, i cannot really explain why it is i so deeply enjoy to sit and rack my brain for a four letter word for freshwater fish, but i do. and i do it on the daily, at least during school.

this book. its one of the most practical encouraging books ever. love it.

dark chocolate. i absolutely love dark chocolate. and hate milk chocolate.
[never had this kind]

sitting outside here:

and that is just a few.

i had a teriffic birthday, really one of the best i’ve ever had.
Surprise party, dinner and hanging out in New Orleans with some friends (jarred and chris made my birthday really great), and I even had the honor of leading Children’s Cup forty days of prayer gathering on my birthday. (thanks mr.dan)
Saturday MORNING (morning being the key word) my mom thought it would be cute to have a surprise party. so its 7:00, im asleep and all of a sudden there are 20 people in my room yelling. Needless to say, I was extremely confused and didnt know what was going on. But, it was great. My mom had tons of breakfast, everything was Disney Princess, we played games, and a couple of people even walked away with starbucks gift cards. not too shabby. The best part? i was 100% surprised.

HA. Tori made me a sign that she thought said “Hey! Happy Birthday Leah!”, but in all actuality said, “Hey! Congratulations Leah!”
i love it.

But, anywho. the point is I had a great birthday. mom and steve got me some really wonderous luggage! ah, thats really the only thing i wanted. Whenever i travel end up borrowing luggage or using old beat-up stuff, so its nice to have a set to call my own.

Regardless, i must say that my favorite present i recieved this birthday was a tree.
a tree?!
a tree.
tori ohlerking knows we all too well. We both share a deep appreciation for trees. I don’t know, they are just such magnificent creations.
and Monday night she rolls up to my house with a tree in a pot. I just can’t tell you how much i love that girl.
she said, “well i just thought you should have your very own tree!”
[ not to mention the fact she had already given me a GREAT gift. a book called TOILETS OF THE WORLD!] –>
YEAH. i know.
Now i just have to plant my new little drake elm and watch it grow. and everytime i see it, i will think of little miss ohlerking and smile.

luggage, toilet book, a tree. what more could a girl want?

quick question: What is the BEST birthday present you have ever recieved. . .or given?
