Well, if it applies, Happy Mother's Day! If you didn't call a maternal figure in your life today, you should do that now. The high point of my day was going for a bike ride with my kids, I got a new bike last month. It was like an early birthday gift (well, that is how I am thinking of it). Before getting my new bike (which, it must be said, is awesome), I hadn't ridden a bike in well over a decade. Sad.
Since we are working with the theme of my favorite things, I thought I would make photography today's theme. So today's gift will be some sort of photo-related thing. Don't worry, you (the recpient) will like it! I am really good at this gift-giving thing, she says humbly.
To be considered for the gift for today, please share a gift that you have gotten that may not have necessarily been a birthday gift; but, was so awesome or extravagant that you kinda had to push it into the birthday gift category (you know, like a bike or a longarm quilting machine, ahem).
I will take comments for this post, and all Novakkah posts, until 11:59 EST (or 2359, should you prefer that), Monday, May 12th. Please leave your responses on the appropriate post. One entry per post/person. Giftees will be selected on the 13th and gifts sent out shortly thereafter.
