It’s officially a new decade.....

Today is my birthday and I’m 51 years young and have decided this is the first year of my fifties since life began in the year one not zero. Since mister man reads my blog I’m hoping he reads this post…. honey I don’t want a cake I want some French macaroons please.
(There subtle hints are always the best!)

Not only is it my birthday today but it’s also our wedding anniversary this weekend, the decades fly by much to fast, slow down please! So we’ll be going out to celebrate and enjoy a few of these personally I’m thinking I’ll have a lot of these.

Nothing makes me happier then spending the day with my men, this image will surprise mister man ;) and it’s really all I need.

But since he asked...I love that mister man is able to create just about anything from a picture and he enjoys making things for our home.  So when he asked me what I wanted for my birthday and our anniversary the choices were simple. I love the pedestals he made for our dining room here and I need another pair of pedestals up in my studio for this pair of antique urns.

We also have a lot of leftover antique wood from our barn renovation and I’m redecorating our dining room so I would love if mister man would copy this mirror, simple but elegant. It’s so nice being able to walk through our home and remember marking each year with the beautiful things mister man has created.

So that’s our weekend a nice dinner out, enjoying the cool fall weather and simply being together what more does a woman need. How about you, do you have anything special planned for your weekend?

Happy Birthday Debra! I wish you a fabulous day and weekend celebrating. As for me, I am taking care of sicko's over here...don't you just love how at the first dip of the temps everyone gets sick and here in PHX it is just 95 instead of 110. Oh well, cie la vie!
Enjoy your day,
