Yes, I am another year older!
For my birthday, I got out of the cold and was able to celebrate
in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
This was the beautiful sunrise yesterday morning with just that
spot of sun shining through on the ocean.
This morning, I woke up to clear blue skies for my birthday.
We had gone out to dinner last night and they had our
table all decorated with these wonderful balloons.
My first birthday call this morning was from my
oldest granddaughter who accidentally added 20 years
to my age as she wished me happy birthday! Wow,
I didn't know I was that old!
Most of the family came to Mexico with us to celebrate
in Cabo, but they left on the weekend
so hubby and I got to spend the next few
days by ourselves.
So, I set a table for two with an ocean view
celebrating the big day.
I chose these textured dishes atop a silver charger for
our table for two.
A couple of shells top these lovely shell dishes.
The table is topped with a scarf I keep here for cooler
evenings. I threw confetti on top of it. At the
restaurant last night they had confetti on our table and
when they came to sing to me, they threw some more
on the table.
Joni, my sister at
used to always send me
cards with confetti inside. When I would open the card,
the confetti would go all over the floor. Hubby and I
reminisced about that with the confetti on the table last night.
The fresh flowers were picked right outside the front door.
The kids called from home and said to enjoy the
warm weather because it is "a frozen tundra" there.
When you are sitting in the warm sun, it is hard to imagine that
the weather at home can be so awful.
A table by the sea makes it even harder to think of cold weather.
This is our everyday flatware here at the house.
I placed a napkin fan in the blue rimmed hand blown
goblets that we buy here in Cabo.
The home is filled with plates and glassware from Cabo.
More shell balls decorate the table.
For Christmas gifts, I made each of the kids a book
of pictures from Cabo.
There's lots of fun and lots of food represented in this
This was the first time I tried Costco's Photo Books
and I was very pleased. They got them printed and
delivered in less than a week right before Christmas
and their site was very easy to use.
I brought a copy to leave at our home here so that
others can see all of the fun things to do here and
fun places to eat.
Alas, I have to head back to the
"frozen tundra" - sigh! -
but I couldn't have had a better birthday.
I will be posting with
