I've been lucky enough to have one of those. Her name is Val.
And SHE was my birthday surprise.
That's right! My amazing hubby and her planned it and she flew in the night before my birthday and surprised me on my doorstep. In fact, she literally walked in less than 30 minutes after I wrote my last post.
I have to say, it's the best birthday surprise/present I could have ever gotten!
And yes, we did still go to the mountains. It was not a cover up, but when we (my hubby and I)were talking about it, I did not know that it would include my best friend too.
The picture above was taken in the gondola on the way to the top of Sulphur Mountain, in Banff, AB.
We've been giggling like teenage girls all week. Oh, yes, I forgot to mention, she was here for a whole week. In fact, she's sitting beside me right now, so I should go pay attention to my guest. But I will be back in a few days and tell you all about touring the mountains and all the other fun stuff.
