Hello Monday people, here's hoping this post finds you well after a happy weekend, what did you get up to?
I always think a good weekend is consisted of getting the right balance between being productive and feeling the satisfaction of ticking things off that ever present 'To Do List' as well of plenty of rest, relaxation and down time, some alone and some with the ones you love. It doesn't happen every time but this weekend it seemed we managed to get the balance just right . . .
. . . . . On Friday celebrating my Lovely Husbands birthday, A relaxing morning at home home opening cards and gifts followed by a gentle wander in Nottingham, lunch at Delilah and cocktails and desert out on the rooftop deck at saltwater.
. . . . . On Saturday running errands, food shopping for the week ahead and finishing off some jobs in the house and garden.
. . . . . And on Sunday catching up with some dear friends amidst the sunshine and flowers in our back yard , and in the evening with family over a lovely Thai meal at Tarn Thai.
Birthdays are truly special I believe, It's the one day of the year to celebrate the birth of *You* your existence, your life here on this earth, your happiness, your attributes, your joy, your loveliness. And that's why we celebrate with someone we love and care about on their birthday, and honour them with a thoughtfully written card and a gift we hope will make them smile because we want to acknowledge all of the above and show them that we do!
A little birthday tradition of mine is to decorate our sitting room so that when Alex walks in, in the morning he feels that real sense of celebration. I like to put my time and love in to hand making the decorations, these hearts, chains and lanterns have been made from a selection of vintage book pages and sheet music I've collected over the years.
Do you have any birthday traditions to honour the ones you love? . .
Have a Lovely day.
