It was a wonderful day

My day has come and gone, but it was wonderful. What I realized is that I have been waiting for this special birthday for a LONG time.  I think in the same way that teenagers look forward to turning 16, so was I.  Only I had to wait 64 years for it!!

I spent the weekend on the Gulf of Mexico in a condo with my sister and my very good friend.
We are so blessed to live in a place like this.
It was chilly but as they say, a cold day at the beach is better than no day at the beach.
We went to Texas Roadhouse on Monday with a bunch of friends and I forgot I would have to ride the bull!!  So much fun.
I have hung Purple Pickles in honor of February, amethyst and my birthday.  It looks so pretty hanging in the living room. 
I'm still basking in the glow.  And my big present from my hubby isn't here yet, he's getting me a new car for my 16th birthday!!  EEK!!  We're still looking for the perfect one at the perfect price, but we're getting close.
Happy stitching,
Karen

Belated birthday greetings to you, Karen. Hubbie and I are heading to a Florida beach at the end of the month, and I'm pretty sure we'll be in total agreement about days being better at a beach. Your beach photos are GORGEOUS, compared to what we look at here in our land-locked area.
I'm totally envious of your birthday present. Let us see it when you make your choice, won't you?
