It's my birthday!

All true! I love larkspurs and laughter and yes, your Buttercup can be quite demanding. And I have gained great wealth. But my treasures aren't in the bank. They are with friends and family and all the money in the world can't buy the love and laughter I've found and memories I have.

And I'll blog if I want to, and I do! Can't think of a better activity. Had my cake and ate it, too! Tuesday was my dear friend Pene's birthday and we celebrated with a festive dinner. The restaurant was lovely and the food delicious. Dessert was especially fun. I ordered S'mores and out came a very sophisticated brownie, topped with homemade marshmallow and graham cracker ice cream with fabulous decoration. I had to take a photo to share with all of you.

Yummy!


Our site to celebrate. We had a lovely time, but we were so lonely for our dear Barbara, whose birthday was July 6. How we miss her!


Tonight -- on my actual birthday -- I will be celebrating with Mary. I am one lucky duck!

Happy birthday to all the July babies! Wishes for love and laughter and larkspurs!


P.S. On the way to the restaurant tonight I passed Magnolia Bakery, well known for cupcakes and "Sex and the City."

What a fancy Smore! They do them up right in New York, look at that icing spelling out Happy Birthday on the plate!!! Elegant! Back in the kitchen they were whispering, "Don't mess up her Smore! This is a July baby! Very demanding!"

Happy Birthday Buttercup! Happy Birthday to you. I am sorry I am a day late and a dollar short. Happy Birthday Sweet Friend. Lovely post, and the bakery looked like a fun place to go to. I love sweets. God help me being an insulin diabetic. I wanted you to take a minute and stop by my blog. I want you to read my Outdoor Wednesday post. I think you will like it.
