I had the most wonderful birthday. I spent it with my family and then I came home, turned on my computer and saw this from my Mishi. It warmed my heart, made me smile and brought tears to my eyes. She is a blessing and a gift to me.

  1. I don’t think I’ve posted a recipe (on my cooking blog) in weeks. That’s because I haven’t been cooking-yikes! Better get on that.

    I love that he thought about the heart!! You deserve a Mr.Wonderful like that 🙂

  4. I am endlessly jealous that you found a seahorse. We don’t exactly find seahorses on the MS Gulf Coast. Crabs? Shrimp? We have. Fairytale creatures like seahorses? Not so much.

    Happy belated birthday, babe. Mimosas make everything nice, don’t they?

    1. In all the years that we’ve been going to the beach we’ve never found one either. I’m choosing to see it as a sign of the amazing year that is to come 😉
      Thank you for the birthday wishes, my sweet friend. xoxo

    1. luff you. The sea horse kind of gave it that magical quality 😉 and the kids were priceless, and then there’s Nathan… he is more than I could have ever asked for 😉

  5. From the heart in the sand to the seahorse, your day looked more than amazing.

    1. thanks! My husband and I were in shock! We couldn’t get over the fact that she found an ACTUAL seahorse!!! Lent a really neat magical air to the day 😉

  7. Oh, it looks like a fantastic birthday!

  8. So glad you had such a beautiful birthday, Rachel! And I cannot believe you guys found a seahorse! Wow!! My son would positively wet himself in excitement if we found one. So cool.

    1. Thanks, Amy! It was a fantastic birthday and I still can’t believe that we found a sea horse! My kids were over the moon and my daughter was upset that I wouldn’t let her keep it 😉

  9. Wow, I just had to comment about the sea horse! That is so cool. It seems all we ever do is take pictures of our kids holding the various bugs and creatures they find, but we’ve never discovered one of those cute little things. Happy birthday!

    1. Thanks!!! Yeah, it’s bit nicer to have a pic of that than of the sea lice or the sea weed 😉 We may never find one again so, it’s cool to have that picture for the kids. Thanks for stopping in!

  10. You are one lucky woman. VERY sweet with the heart in the sand.
