...another day (...or year) older...

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

...I don't even know where to begin to tell you about what a wonderful birthday I had...I'm really too spoiled for words...

...my day started with a cup of vegan vanilla-soy-latte...delivered to me as I awoke...

...so very good...

...Scout baked an Applesauce Spice Cake...

...very pretty...it looks like he took a pinch of it...

...there was a stack of presents and cards...

...a lovely dinner on the deck...

...a pretty cake...

...and pretty flowers...

...a nice bottle of red red wine...

...candles and a song...

...a lovely day...
