Birthday Love

Thought I would share with you some photos that I've taken in the last few days. That way I get to spread my birthday joy out for a few more days! :0)

Here is the beautiful hyacinth and card that my sister Elena gave me. Wish you could smell the hyacinth. Heavenly!

Here is the card that my hubby Steven made for me. He made it small so I could carry it in my wallet. But I had to get a magnifying glass to read it! I couldn't stop laughing once I did. You may have to enlarge the picture to read it. I included a dime with the front side so you can get an idea of the scale.

Here is a pile of some of my favorite magazines that Steven indulged me with at Barnes and Nobles. However, my cat Kiki doesn't seem too impressed!

Here is the bouquet of lilies that Steven got me. The delivery date got mixed up, so I didn't get it until Monday, and they didn't start opening 'til yesterday. So another way to extend the joy! ;) You should smell these also--another of my very favorite flowers!

Love and Blessing to All! Denise
