Yesterday was my Birthday!

And it was a very good day. It started with brownies and ice cream for breakfast!

Abby was shocked when I made the suggestion but quickly warmed up to the idea.

After "breakfast", we played dress up and had a blast. I have not played dress up since my mother had a tea party business years ago... years. So it was as much fun for me as it was for Abby!

She even got to jump on the bed in her dress and pearls!

The highlight of the day was when my parents pulled into the driveway in their rental car... having gotten up at 4:30 a.m. to fly here from VA to surprise me. The pure delight in my spirit was such a welcomed feeling... I can still feel it lingering there! Abby and I ran out into the driveway to meet them in our ball gowns... it was quite the sight.

They took me to lunch and then made a scrumptious Birthday dinner as well! Don made it home from a trip just in time to join us for dinner. Yeah.

Here are some pictures that captured the day. The amazing hydrangeas are from my friend Ryan.

Happy Day!


  1. Happy Birthday! It sounded like an absolutely great day!
