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.’
