Happy Birthday, Dahling!

The hostess in the new little black dress with the dramatic necklace and earrings that were a gift from her boys, "with some help from Dad."

Soundtrack for "Something's Gotta Give" playing quietly in the background; boys playing guitar and bongo in the foreground.

Thai feast for all the senses - sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch, but mostly heart.

Orange chiffon cake beaten and beaten and baked and iced painstakingly so that it would be perfect for his girl.

Presents chosen and given with care, and received with tenderness.

The "Queen for the Day" gift bag making its first appearance this year.

And everywhere you look, an abundance of love for this wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, minister whom we celebrate on this day and cherish all year round.


  1. Many happy returns of the day all the way from India!
    Love, Chloe

  2. It was a day for me to celebrate all the love I've received, all this time, that has made me who I am. The phone calls, presents and presence filled my heart! Thank you so much, everyone, with much love!

    P.S. Genuinely - best cake ever!!! Abiding love and thanks for life to Dad and Mum. xxxx


I love to hear from you! Please leave me a leaf to read ...
