A wonderful day!

My birthday yesterday was all that I wanted... I had a wonderful, relaxing day with my sweet husband and children!! It started off with a yummy breakfast in bed...

... the gift of some gorgeous pink roses (my favorite, what a surprise!!)...

... and this photo editing software that I have been wanting for a long time!!! Have you used it? Do you like it?

This week I did splurge on buying a couple of gifts for myself!! I got this adorable vintage pink wicker chair from my friend Christine! Isn't it the cutest thing?

I also found this wonderful rose painting at Monticello and had to have it!

Then, my sweet friend Lisa stopped by to give me a hug and gave me this adorable french tin (farine is flour in French), I just love it!!!

In the afternoon, we watched a World Cup soccer qualifier game between Portugal and Sweden (unfortunately it ended at 0-0, which means we have slim to none chances of going to the World Cup next year...), and then went out to one of our favorite restaurants, The Claim Jumper!! We came home and turned the lights off to observe Earth Hour; how much fun did we have playing games by the candlelight!!! We even sang Happy Birthday in complete darkness!! It was a wonderful day!!


  1. Oh Isabel!
    Sure sounds like a perfect day to me!
    Happy Birthday to you......

  2. Happy Birthday, Isabel! It sounds like you had a day filled with love, laughter & pampering. Who could ask for more than that?

    What a great picture of you, surrounded by your family! Love is priceless & the biggest gift of all!
    I have Adobe Photoshop C3 & I couldn't do without it! My husband does lots of web design, so he has taught me some, but it has endless opportunities, if you take the time to read the info book .......
