Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus

Rarely have I had wonderful weather on my late September birthday. Yesterday was an exception.

With all the precipitation we have had this summer, the colors this early autumn are brilliant.

My children spoiled me yesterday it was a nice role reversal. As I have stated in past posts, my time with them under my roof is limited.

The entire day was mine yesterday. One on one time spent with my youngest until my older daughter was off work was priceless.

My mother sent a package to be opened by my girls and presented to me in a creative and fun array of small 'gifts' throughout the day beginning with a wake up call with party horns and singing.

The girls continued to surprise me throughout the day. Flowers, gifts, games, and all ending with dinner out and a surprise guest (my best friend and her kids).

I am a lucky lucky woman.
