Recipe for a Lovely Birthday



Take one bouquet of pink roses.



Add a dressed-up storebought cake.



Sprinkle in some touches of pink and generous amounts of family time.



Yields a lovely birthday for one very grateful mommy.

Happy birthday, Melissa!

Wishing you all the best and that the year ahead brings you health and happiness.

BTW...I so enjoyed catching up with your blog. I've been remiss in visiting (hands and hearts are full caring for our newest little blessing!) this holiday season, but loved your most recent posts including the pARTy and spelling bee dinner.

You are a wonderful example of the word "MOTHER"!

Blessings,
Valerie
