In the haste of getting ready for our quick weekend trip I was a very bad daughter-in-law and forgot to set up a post that would "magically" appear on Sunday with very special birthday wishes. You see, Sunday was my mother-in-law's birthday and while we personally conveyed our "happy birthday" wishes over the phone [she was unable to join us at Bristol], I feel terrible that my normal birthday "shout out" wasn't properly planned.
Connie, I hope your day was filled with lots of love, laughter, and new memories. Speaking of memories, this is one of my favorite pictures of you. It was taken during s'mores night on our first family beach vacation [2 summers ago]. I'm not sure what you were laughing about but it made your eyes dance with the mischievousness of a little girl. Hopefully your birthday brought with it something that made you giddy once again!
