...a Joyful Sunday my dears!!
(look~a sea horse rock!)
I thought today
I'd share just a few pictures from my
I like to call it a celebrate day instead of a birthday.
birthday just seems sooooo
like I'm counting down a clock
a life clock...
it's not that I'm trying to run away from time
(NO ONE gets out alive, I tell ya`!)
It's just that I find it's much less
to simply have a happy day
of full on celebrating
where everything is about
without thinking about a timeline
One thing you probably don't know about me is:
I adore mer's...
as in mermaids!!
I'm talkin` I may have a very distant relative
that IS a MER I tell ya`!!!!
but strangest thing is
I HATE swimming...
...that I can't SEE through!!
I'm convinced that This is why I am not swimming
with Ariel today!!!
I was stripped of my beautiful tail and got thrown back up on land!!!
I am always on the lookout for
authentic evidence that I didn't just dream the whole thing up!!!!
(someday I will do a post on the proof of mer's that surround me in my house!)
of course you understand
that when I saw this...
it was a sign!!
I just haaadddd to get a shot...
(I was thinking ~ "Dude, you're so much smaller than I remebered you!")
Neptune was always one of my fav's!!!!
He just got me!!
fastforward to later that day,
while I was taking an afternoon walk on the beach
these washed up at my feet!
with a note
written on seaweed
that simply said...
"Happiest Celebrated day! love, Neptune"
(I told you he got me!!)
...can you imagine my utter delight???
I think he liked his dr. pepper lipbalm kiss,
it gets even better!
as the day was winding down,
we hopped in the car and headed to my most favorite beach...
~ Carmel by the sea ~
every chance we get,
I have been coming since I was 16!
(hhhmmmm.....maybe this is the portal to my way back
and that's why it calls to me!!!)
It was getting near sunset
and as we drove closer...
there were MANY cars...
and MANY, MANY people!
We thought some special event was going on...
there was a special event ~
it was the:
(sunset at the sea!!)
and we were absolutely delighted to find
that we also had front row seating
(it's the dr. pepper lipbalm, I tell ya`!!!!)
I looked all around us,
and it was like a scene from the movie
~City of Angels~
and all the Angels were here!
so we plunked our happy selve's down
and got ready for THE show of a lifetime!!
and after the last little bit of sun had set,
we realized that we had just seen a magnificent gift before our very eyes
and an ethereal energy rushed through us
like a refreshing breeze on a hot summer day
and without being aware of it,
we rose to our feet in AWE
and every other soul on that beach that evening
also rose to their feet
and truely something I will Never forget!
another wonderous gift!
We drove back to our beach room with rubbery dubbery smiles from the day
had a piece of the most yummiest
If you read this particular post
then you'd understand ~ this gift.
My dearest, most beautiful 13 year old daughter was having NO part
of me making my own celebrate cake
completely from scratch
and getting this chocolately goodness
to it's final destination was no easy feat!
but she babied it
and many miles later
their it sits
in all it's deep dark chocolate glory
(I said I like to celebrate...not burn my eyebrows off from the candle glow!)
another thing about a celebrate day
gets to make a wish!!!
but mine had already come true
I had the
...thank you my love
you are the only mere~man
that can sweep me off my feet!!!!!
here's to days to celebrate!!
...there are still time to put your name in the hat for
