Today our dear daughter turned 30!...and she was NOT amused when we attempted to tease her about becoming an old lady! It seems like only yesterday that I was turning 30. Do you remember how you celebrated your 30th? I recall that C was out of town, and K was just a toddler, so after I got her settled in bed I poured myself a glass of wine and went down to our boathouse to enjoy the wonderful sunset.
I tried in vain to find a wonderful card for her, but when I couldn't I decided to make one:
I think she liked it...........she is very particular, but she does appreciate it when someone takes the time to do something original for her.
Her gifts???? She is running in a Cancer relay with her company's team in a few weeks and she asked for donations. That was all she wanted for her birthday! Her grandmother and I honored those wishes, but her Daddy gave her a gift certificate to her (current) favorite clothing store.
Her God Parents joined us for an Easter/Birthday luncheon today: smoked ham; roasted asparagus; garlic roasted sweet potato fries; spring mix salad with grape tomatoes, avocado, and hearts of palm with lemon vinaigrette dressing; and chocolate swirl cheesecake for dessert. YUMMMM! Here are our darling daughter and her wonderful, adorable, and oh so amusing husband today at lunch.....and no, he doesn't have a black eye: the lighting was bad and photoshop chose to capture him that way.
