Saturday Party...


In the tradition of drawing one's birthday out for as longs as possible (Megan's mother has actually suggested a birthday month...and has read a book where there was made mention of a birthday season...could you imagine?!) We had a little birthday party this weekend with a great gathering of the most wonderful people...

It was terribly windy as Megan and Matthew had planned on the ceremonial first lighting of the fire pit for the summertime...


It was not to be however, as the howling winds reminded us more of being in an episode of Scooby-Doo (it was all the howling around corners and almost knocking Megan's amazing art off the walls that really did it...I didn't actually see any ghosts or crotchety old caretakers skulking about) And, it ended up being a bit freezy instead...As you can see...Rich ended up borrowing my what we now are referring to as a "plum" jacket...and we all though he rocked the color.

I brought the new DSLR with me...and have actually been scared to death to carry it around seeing as I don't have a camera case for it (although, I may have remedied that) and I am paranoid that it's going to explode for no good reason...and to prove my point, as I was headed down the driveway carrying the cake, the camera and talking on the cell...(what? I'm an Aries woman...I totally multi-task) the lens cap popped off and fell into the dirt.

For absolutely no good reason whatsoever.

See? Total and utter camera explosion!

But, it really only resulted in me using it the one time for the picture above...and I had to use the flash (which I'm not too thrilled about) As you can probably tell, the camera would most likely take a great picture even if I wasn't around to supervise it...

Along with the fabulous food spread...there were some wonderful gifts as well. I received an amazing bracelet from Megan...who, in my opinion makes some of the most fabulous jewelry. She made this delicate and beautiful bracelet for me with some pretty special beads from her stash (I totally envy someone that can use their stash pieces) and the sweetest silver Thai charm that hangs of the bracelet...matching the Tiffany one that I usually wear daily...I may never take this off! There were also some red passionate magnetic poetry, Burts Bees, a Happy book, a soap shaped like a rock of Lapis, a Joanne's GC, and the most wonderful hand drawn card from Megan's father...

I am still considering myself a very lucky girl. I am so thankful for such a great gathering of friends and feel deeply touched with all the outpouring of appreciation...then again, it was just like every gathering Megan has at her house...only more presents! Thank you everyone...

This was such a great and memorable birthday this year...and the best parts included the gathering of my loving family, incredible friends and the most special man in my life...

And, now I'm looking forward to kicking back and relaxing into this old age...
