A lovely, family birthday celebration
Although 4 of us went out to dinner last weekend (not all could attend), we held off until my actual birthday, at my request for cake and any gifts. All I ever expect from the kids is a card, for which I tell them that I'll even supply the materials! One DS bought me a lemon cake with raspberry filling from Whole Foods, decorated in my favorite colors.
Another gift was a bouquet of coordinating with the cake flowers, from DD, along with some Lush soaps, some scented pump soaps for the sink. I also got a metal tray that I am using to corral bread/rolls and a pretty, floral Pashmina type scarf in a print of the colors I normally wear.
