There was music.
My hubby serenaded me with
his rendition of the birthday song.

We had a celebration 
with lots of confetti
and some out of the ordinary gifts.

An authentic television script 
from a favorite show.
A vintage Russian Sci-Fi Book circa Sputnik.
A Hula Dancer figurine made of Lava.
An antique book of Hawaiian translations.
 a Peruvian Necklace...
a nostalgic STAR book mapping the galaxy
and a special CD from a 
beloved radio broadcast.

Of course there was also 
something scrumptious to eat
with BUTTERCREME frosting.

After the birthday girl had 
a cocktail.
It was GOOD to the last drop.

As you can see in the picture my texting 
and typing finger are having issues 
right now, so bear with me if I'm slower 
than usual posting or commenting.

Music, gifts, goodies, cocktails, and love.... it sounds like a perfect birthday to me! Your birthday photo is great - - but it looks like your poor hand took a beating. Good heavens, what happened??

Happy Birthday and warmest wishes always.

And I hope your injured hand heals soon!
