the best day


I had a very good birthday. Cards in the mail, emails, phone calls, facebook messages and your wishes here in yesterday's comments came in all day long. The boys surprised me with homemade gifts, and Alexi with a slide show of my life. And I had such a perfect day with them, ending with a memorable meal at Delancey. Thank you so much everyone for all the love.

Great photos- I liked the first (I could have reached right in grabbed) and the last- what better ending than Delancey and pizza with a glass of wine?
And what a wonderful family you have!
Keep the birthday going all weekend!

It's good to know you had an awesome day. The food shots look tasty. Thanks for sharing snapshots of your special day. :-)

Kristin said...

That first shot looks like my ideal morning! And don't worry...the great thing about fashion is that it is subjective. If you want to pretend leggings don't exist, that is your prerogative. : )
