La vie en rose
This year to avoid the rain that was supposed to start on my birthday, we celebrated one day ahead of time. But I knew it was the right day to celebrate since the roses in front of the house were blooming.
Our friends Jules and George brought me some roses.
I bought some nice white ones to go in my beer bottle vases for the table
Richard and Dinah gave me a pot of roses which really was…
a pot filled with bottles of rosé wine. What a perfect gift!
Flowers always make an occasion seem special. In the days after my birthday I was more and more reminded of that when I was helping out with the wedding of the year. (many posts about it soon)
On my actual birthday, Ben and I quietly enjoyed a favorite, so special the ingredients have to be brought over in a suitcase, chili con queso dip along with guacamole . Hmmmmm, nothing like a high calorie treat, followed by chocolate cake.
I know that I am more than fortunate to enjoy my ‘vie en rose.’
