Friday night was my 60th birthday -- or as Fee had them put it on the cake...
I didn't get down to the cabin until after dark, and it was just Fee, me, Robin, and Marty. We had dinner and relaxed and visited. My birthday began on Friday, but lasted the entire week end and (as Kim remembered from a post from about 5-6 months ago) I plan on celebrating all year long!
Saturday morning, I took pictures of the pillows on our bed in our cabin. Fee bought me this bed for our anniversary early in our marriage, and we eventually moved it into Erin's room when we got a queen size bed. Now we've moved it to the cabin.
Robin gave me these DELICIOUS nuts with all kinds of delicious stuff mixed in and a measuring cup because a serving size is 1/4 cup. I just kept eating 1/4 cups until I had quite a few servings!
Fee gave me this wonderful carved Buddha which I adore!
Saturday was quiet, but the kids began coming in that afternoon. Amelia, Bryce, and Chris.
Later, Erin, Max, and Mila.
and Katie...Megan made this awesome handmade journal! I love handmade books and am so proud of this one. She chose the design and had it screen printed on the cover. So many treasures.
The necklace is from Amelia and Chris. It has a quote from Emerson: "what lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."I had originally planned to give myself a birthday party and crone-ing celebration with just the women and girls, but with all of the things that kept coming up, I never got around to planning it. For some reason, I have been in the most joyful mood for the last week and this lovely, relaxed weekend will always be one of my favorite memories.
Came home Sunday night to enjoy the glorious flowers Erin sent. Today has been hectic, but after tonight's yoga class, I began trying to recount my blessings.
