One of my favorite gifts ever..............

Well this past week I celebrated my birthday.  I was overwhelmed with birthday wishes and blessings by cards, facebook well wishes, kiddos hugs and singing and all kinds of goodies.  My husband gave me one of my most favorite gifts ever (if you know me well- you know he gave me one of the best gifts I've been given in my life this past November- leave a comment if you think you know what that gift was- hint.....I am still using it)

Anyway................. I woke up to find a Kindle beside me! Woo Hoo!
I will always love a "real, live" book (so don't worry Mrs. Lynda!) However, I absolutely love it.  The first book I read on my kindle was Leota's Garden by Francine Rivers. 
I actually discovered tonight I could go to Christian Book Distributor's site and find all the Christian books that are free in their section and go to Amazon and look up the same books under Kindle and download those free too! I actually think I downloaded about 30 books tonight - very easily added since my awesome husband included 3G on my Kindle! So now I am all set for vacation in a few weeks.

Thank you to everyone who helped my day (and week) so special!

Hey! I believe the gift was your tumbler-- a specialized cup that doesn't sweat-- but I don't remember the name of it :)

Niki - well that was a gift I gave myself so it didn't count. Maybe I haven't posted about my favorite gift- so I will.
Emily- You are very welcome. Awesome book- I finished Leota's Garden. Have a great day!
