My birthday in pictures

oh my, what a special birthday i had! i felt exceptionally loved and celebrated! that's what birthdays are for!! thank you my dear family and my dear friends for taking the time to send me flowers, gifts, facebook greetings, phone calls, cards, (I especially enjoyed my girl Kara's phone message....which is saved for those days I need a good laugh)!
i am loved well! now, i will pass that love along to others!!!

The jackpot gift from my thoughtful and amazing husband!
A "vintage" phone from Pottery Barn! I had told him in passing that I liked it, well over a year ago! Major brownie points for remembering! He's great like that! I think he was happy as well to see our FOR REAL vintage phone vanish from the kitchen. That thing was so crackly and staticy I had to constantly tell people, "could you hold while I go find our real phone!!??" HA HA!!

A darling feather wreath from my sister Von, she gave me some bubble bath too that is luxury in a bottle! This wreath looks great above our fireplace mantel.
A colorful and joyful bouquet of flowers from my brother Tom.

An awesome mixed cd from Jena and a funny, funny card!

The coolest cupcake on the block! Delivered to my door from Kara and Shar.

My Mom's old vintage scale...now perfectly placed in my kitchen. She and Dad weighed their children on this...newborn little babies lying on a cookie sheet atop this precious gem!! beautiful flowers from my sister Jan. A lovely morning with my friends Rebecca and Kristina, breakfast at Prince Street Cafe and my choice of dessert from La Dolce Vita!
