Best Day Ever!

Yesterday was my birthday. And although it didn’t have anything in the way of limousines or cavier or roses or fireworks – it was easily the best day… EVER.

I’m a simple girl. Very simple. I require very little in the way of pampering and am quite content with the very simplest of things that life has to offer. In fact, given the choice between opulent and rustic… I’d go with rustic every single time.

I like this about me. There are no apologies here.

And this day was exactly that.

My sweetie planned a wonderful day for me and I felt really special. So thank you to all who sent me a message. Thank you to all who patiently tolerated my excessive Instagramming. And thank you to the sweet man I share my life with for knowing exactly what I wanted and giving me exactly that.

Note: We added 1 tbsp of chopped shallots & made our salad with extra old cheddar instead of blue cheese & omitted the nuts because the Mr. detests them. Sigh.

  1. Now that’s what I call a perfect birthday! Rustic is the way to go and homemade is much more satisfying (and cheaper of course!) Love all the photos and hope your cookery books and wonderful arty farty stuff brings you Much Joy! (Why not let Mr. loose on the blackboard and see what he comes up with – you may be surprised!) I am expecting to see cute messages to each other on your blackboards, using those wonderful new chalks! 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing, Linds! Makes me feel like I was celebrating with you. What a VERY special day for a VERY special gal!! We love you….and Mr. W of course.

  3. Sorry I missed your birthday! Sounds absolutely wonderful! You’re right, he is special and you deserve the very best. Take care and may each new day be as good as your birthday.
