My Birthday

James and I had a good day yesterday celebrating my birthday. He brought a bouquet of flowers home for me and we went out for dinner at The Melting Pot
Opening a gift from James' bother and his wife.  It was a little ceramic sign from The Mustard Seed.  It is an organization for adults with developmental disabilities.  One of the ways they raise money is by the sell of ceramics that have been painted by the adults that they serve.  The sign has the last part of Eph. 3:18 written on it.  I'm not sure where I want to hang it yet, but I think it would look cute in Samantha's room.
This is my camera bag, and while it is very functional it is not very pretty.  The backpack style bag has served me well for hiking in the Grand Canyon and walking the streets of NYC, but I was a little tired of taking it to for formal events like weddings.  James got me a new camera bag that was designed by a photographer that we went to college with.  You can find her collection at Kelly Moore Bags

Here's the bag with the camera, three lenses, memory card case, and battery charger in it.  There are exterior pockets for keys, a wallet and other small necessities.
I also got this pretty handmade scarf from my mom, but I opened that package before James got home so I don't have a photo of me opening it.  It matches a hat that she gave me last year.
My birthday cake.  James got it at a nearby bakery called French Gourmet Cafe.  Carrot cake is one of my favorites.


  1. Looks like a good birthday. Love seeing your gifts and cake. Isn't Kelly smart to design those pretty camera bags!

  2. Looks like you had a great birthday and so glad you got one of Kelly's bags. Bridget introduced me to those a while back and I thought they were so good looking. Bridget knew her from Tech too. Hope it is a super wonderful year for you!

  3. Happy Belated Birthday!!!! Love the camera bag too! So cute!!!
