The big birthday weekend....

It as been a blast! Had a lovely dinner out with DH on Friday night, a new place for us and now will be a favourite. Mum called me 3 times which was very sweet, I miss her a lot but she is coming back to the US in December so I will see her then. Seemed to be a jewelry birthday for me so very happy on that front.

We went to a wedding yesterday for DH's 2nd cousin, One of the most beautiful weddings and brides I have ever seen. Had a brilliant time and the reception was like someone had thrown me one big birthday celebtration so in hindsight, going to a wedding on your B'day is highly recommended.

Here are some fun snaps of us in the photo booth at the reception.
