Beach Birthday


Yesterday, my birthday, began with cupcakes for breakfast.
That set a decidedly decadent tone for the day, in which special cards were presented to me (this one I will never part with),


My favorite flowers filled our house in my favorite spots,


and at mid-morning we decided that it was time for the beach.


We spent an hour or so beach combing, collecting bits and pieces from the sea, here is what we found,
 can you believe the variety of color? Those blue crab claws are stunning!!


Taking a moment to just think and BE at the beach was probably my favorite part of the day,


Then in the evening Frank and I headed out to dinner, in a wild rain storm,


We had dinner at an amazing restaurant called Husk in a old renovated mansion in downtown Charleston, like something from another era,


where we sat on the front porch talking after dinner, enjoying the feeling of being outside on a warm night in a beautiful city after a rain storm.
