I woke up this morning a 34 year old woman. 34, it really is just a number…
I don’t feel much different than I did the night before when I went to bed.
We started off the celebration a bit early with a nice family dinner at The Melting Pot.
We love us some fondue, especially the cheese and chocolate kind.
I even had a drink in honor of the day.
The Mangolicious was truly delicious – just the right mixture of sweet mixed with a bit of sour.
Guess, it’s kinda like me.
And of course, the dark chocolate fondue with a bit of Grand Marnier thrown in was decadent as always.
Definitely a family favorite.
I even got all three of my loves to sit together and pose for me.
They couldn’t refuse me and were on their best behavior.
Today, the actual day of the celebration of my 34 years.
We spent it on and in the water.
Little One and I stuck together on the boat that took us along the Intracoastal
to lunch at Two Georges.
It’s such an experience to pull up to a restaurant by way of boat and not car.
Our view from the back of the boat was phenomenal as it only can be on such a glorious day on the water.
Looking at the
houses mansions along the water is a sight to behold.
I do much prefer this view, unencumbered by the intrusion of humans.
After lunch it was time to get our toes a bit sandy and play in the surf.
One of us got buried under a mound of sand (no, it wasn’t me).
Some of us swam like dolphins.
And some just enjoyed the wind in our hair and the sun shining on the water.
At the end of the day, a surprise waited by the front door as we trickled in, pleasantly tired form this most perfect of days.
No house work, no cooking!
Smiles, sunshine, and chocolate cake!
(Which I don’t have a picture of because my phone had died.)
Birthday flowers are the best kind and these came all the way from Germany!
