Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter Melissa! She turns 23 today and I am thrilled that we will be able to celebrate with her tonight. It is not often that you are able to celebrate with older children on their actual birthday and it is wonderful that it worked out this year. The plans were hers to choose and she chose to come to our house, with her boyfriend, for a casual backyard barbeque.
She chose the menu too; barbeque chicken, lots of grilled veggies and caprese salad. She didn't want a cake, but asked for brownie sundaes that I will make a little more special by the addition of fresh raspberries. There are candles ready to blow out, presents and a bottle of champagne chilling.
I look forward to celebrating her and wishing her a beautiful year to come.
