Here's to another happy year.


Hooray! Today is my birthday and I can't imagine a year much better than this year has been for me.
Seriously, it is has been one of the best and happiest years for me.
My husband's big day is on Saturday so we celebrate doubly.

Last year's champagne

We generally celebrate with a bottle of Moet and


a crazy awesome cake with "Granny Steele" frosting.

I prefer to stay at home for my birthday dinner and we will be having cheese fondue.

Yum.
It wouldn't be my birthday if I didn't get myself a present!

I bought two of these from The Pink Pagoda's shop and


I was shopping for my husband and a few things followed me home.
This plant to brighten up a corner of my deck plus a few outdoor things that will be in tomorrows post.
The irony is that it will be too hot to enjoy my evolving outdoor space on either of our birthdays.


This is a photo of my 5th birthday. It was taken at our beach house in Rehoboth, Del. and I remember that fantastic cake, the green checked bathing suit and my dear grandmother. Her birthday was on July 1st and in the photo it looks they were having a week long party from the numerous wine and liquor bottles in the background !

Happy birthday! I think I need one of those champagne water coolers :) And I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only person to buy myself birthday presents!
