Thank you, friends, for your sweet birthday wishes yesterday. I had a fabulous day, the kind that brings good tears to one's eyes. A leisurely two hour stroll, started before sun-up, camera in hand. Time spent in a cafe, reading cards from loved ones far away. A wonderful day at work, thanks to my amazing boss and coworkers, with cake, champagne, and gifts. A delicious dinner. And a knock-your-socks-off dessert, panna cotta with bourbon drenched dates, prepared by Barry himself.
Speaking of the mister, I'm all excited because he's been posting to his found photos blog again. The other day, his box of old photo treasures came out, and I've been admiring them, strewn across our desk, each so delicate and carefully chosen. Take note: that's probably the only time you'll hear me say I love anything in the state of being strewn. But it's true. His pairing of these stunning old photos with text from great authors blows me away.
While we're talking about photos, can I say how happy I am that Abby has opened a shop in which she's selling her beautiful images? And how lucky I am to be the recipient of one of them? (Those would be my knees and mid-sentence hand down there... how cool is that?) Thanks, Abby for the perfect birthday surprise, and best of luck with the shop.
Have a terrific day, friends. You all helped to make mine very special.
