Birthday Wishes Come True

BIG Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful Blogland birthday wishes ! I feel so very, very blessed !

Yesterday was a good day ! It started with a mushy card from my hubby, you know the kind that makes you tear up ? I think a mushy card is a must from your hubby, and my man never fails to delivers, whatever the celebration! The absolutely gorgeous fall day (75 degrees and sunny in New Hampshire in October is a gift all right !) was filled with little treats from friends, great emails, sweet phone calls, a little birthday shopping and the grand finale - a trip to Hampton Beach to watch the sunset, the moon rise and to collect some more rocks for a little project I am working on....
Here's some shots from our time (all of them taken by the hubby man himself )...

Hampton Beach, New Hampshire

Ta-Da ! The Ocean !!!Only 40 minutes from my house !

I quickly took off my shoes and ...

put my toes in the water...about 55 degrees I would say !

(Nice feet shots by David, don't you think ?)

Here's a gift I found for myself - my heart rock !

So what did we do at the beach ? We watched the moon rise over the waves:

We smooched a little :

We played a little :

We took some arty photos as per my requests:
and we gathered enough rocks to fill my bucket :

(my bucket at home on my desk this morning- ready for some paint and some love
All in all, the evening was a perfect way to celebrate the Queen's birthday !
See the happy, happy Queen :

The Kim Birth-Festival continues this weekend as we head to Montreal and to Mont Tremblant for Canadian Thanksgiving and family celebrations. The weather is supposed to be fantastic all weekend - a kind of Indian Summer up there ! It should be beautiful all around. In spite of how scary and unsure so many things are in this world, we still have so very, very much to be thankful for ! So I am off to count my blessings...
Have a great weekend !
