Today, I received my "surprise" 40th-birthday gift from Pam: an AwesomeBox! What a great gift—I absolutely love it.

Here are a couple amazing gifts from friends in the past couple of days. Neither Pam nor I are from gift-giving backgrounds, and when our friends have had babies, neither of us have really thought too hard about sending gifts. This is a huge contrast to those friends of ours who have really gone out of their way to send us truly thoughtful gifts. We have been surprised, and thankful, multiple times each week. Thank you, everyone!
(These gifts are from David Fishman and Nancy Felston, and from Susan and Brad Brown. Susan works for Lucasfilm, and is giving Baby Mako some proper Star Wars love!)
What an amazing gift from Bryndis Kristjansdottir and Valdimar Leifsson! Bryndis hand-knitted these beautiful items out of pure wool and cotton, and dropped them off at my hotel in Reykjavik.
