Thank You!

Thank you for all the happy birthday wishes!  I am truly thankful for my friends and family, our good health, and the love we share.  Not a day goes by that I do not stop and give thanks for these blessings.

Having a Friday birthday makes it extra special - especially when followed by an absolutely gorgeous weekend.  For as long as I can remember, I worked at the furniture market on my birthday.  My market friends always went out of their way to make my day special, but honestly nothing beats being at home with my family!  My sweet husband surprised me with a night at the O.Henry Hotel

I used to not get why people would stay in a hotel in their own town - I totally get it now.  Talk about relaxing!

Adding to the celebration, last weekend was Grimsley's homecoming.  I love seeing the kids all dressed up and having fun.  Such great times!

On a totally unrelated note, my friends from My Pillow Studio sent me these yellow pillows.  Love!


  1. Oh, Rene, I'm sorry I missed your birthday! Happy belated birthday! It looks like you had a fantastic weekend planned by your loving men.

  2. Happy belated Birthday, sweet Rene! What a thoughtful gesture by the Mister. My son isn't old enough for homecoming yet, but I had to go over to my friends and check out the girls I've known since they were little - so fun to see them all dressed up!

  3. Happy Belated Birthday Rene! It looks like you had a terrific day and a little special pampering, which you certainly deserve.
