I’m back! And I’m another year older since I was here last. Sorry that I have not posted in awhile. After Cousin Camp, two grandchildren stayed for another two weeks:

and at the end of their stay all my children and grandchildren came to help me celebrate my birthday.

I am just not the kind of person who can manage that much, and do blog posts on the side 😉  But I am back, and happy to be connecting with my “blog family” again. 🙂

I just have to tell you that I had one of the best birthdays of my life…even though it was a big one! If you want to figure out which one it was, read my About Me page and do the math…if you can count that high!

My sweet husband outdid himself! He invited all the kids and planned TWO parties. A daytime one with the children, and an amazing dinner out for all the adults. He thought of everything: private room, balloons, cakes, flowers,wine, cards, gifts (for everyone), food, surprises, decorations, and more. In addition to giving me lovely gifts, my children read sweet notes that made me cry, and my husband shared a photo album about our life together.  I have relived that day in my head almost every day since then, and wish I could go back and do it all again. And I have almost forgiven him for getting me a cake with so many candles! It took all of us a long time to blow them out.

Just so you know, my dress was one I had picked out to wear to the party, and it was more than $20.00, but not much more 😉 And of course I had to get shoes to go with it. After all, it was my birthday!

I finally had a day to take some photos, so I will be back soon with some outfits for you to critique. Thanks for sticking with me! See you soon.
