When one hits a certain age..
birthdays take on a whole new meaning..
No more pin the tail on the donkey, goodie bags, party hats
and the occasional pony..
the best kind of birthday has these key ingredients...
Wearing a fabulously sparkly necklace and some orange toes...
Getting a surprise visit from a dear dear friend
(especially if they battled an overrun cesspool and took 3 ferries to get to you)
Having the Tall-One boil up some delicious lobsters...
Creating a feast for the senses all by candlelight while sipping Proseco out of delicate Anthropologie glasses
Hoards of chocolate cake all the while being sing-sung by the Monster & 3 Cousins via phone!
a new sparkly clutch
about a zillion of the most wonderful birthday wishes via Facebook, Text and Email!
I am certainly one LUCKY lady!!
