Birthday Celebrations

For my 35th Birthday I decided to dress up my Princess and take her out to lunch. Then I invited my Mom (Stregga) to join us, she invited her mother (my Nonni) Then I talked to Crazy Cousin and invited her and her mother (Auntie)
I figured since lunch was turning into a party, I would call Zhaz and her daughters to join us. My Godmother was included on the plan too. She had to work, so we decided to have lunch at the restaurant where she Hostesses. And before you know it, it was a big Birthday Bash!!! We had a fantastic Italian meal and my favorite berries and creme cake!! We chatted for over 3 hours!!!

It was a glorious afternoon! I even got presents!! I love presents!!! I got a zebra print Snuggi -love it!!! And hot pink slippers with tiaras on them!! And chocolate red wine, yummm!! And a nice bag of bath bubbles and candles.

I am so fortunate to have a group of amazing women in my life to support me in the good times and the bad. Over the years I have been able to count on each of them individually to pick me up when I have fallen or as a group to rally around me when I have needed a moral boost. And I can always rely on them to laugh at and with me when I need a reality check!!! It was so much fun celebrating the day with them and I loved that my Princess is now part of
the group!!

Here are some highlights from the day:
