Your pictures make me miss the coast - so bad! Glad you got away, and yes you probably should do it more often :) Hope you had a great birthday!!

Happy B-day. I made your carrot-kale soup for dinner last night and thought I'd see what you'd posted recently! This pics are fabulous. They make me want to go to the coast too...and we just came back from a getaway to the woods. The photos are not nearly so striking...everything is brown!

p.s. I love the last block you made for 12 square. It'll be fun to see what people make for yours!

Super Happy Belated Birthday! It looks like you had a beautiful one! I just got your package mailed out yesterday. I'm so sorry, we were all sick with the ick last week and I didn't make it to the post office.

Happy birthday!

Wonderful photos.

And what a positive way to spin what sounds like a bit of a challenging trip (throwing up kid and "debacle").

Lia said...

Yes, happy belated birthday! It's so great to get away on birthdays, for moms especially, I think.

Happy belated birthday. What gorgeous photos...
Sounds like the ideal gift, sans the throw up. But memorable, no?
