Where I Celebrated

Do you recognize this gate?

Yes, there was tea.

Now this is a sure give away.
The sun was amazing.

A famous island just off shore.

A palace?

Now for sure you must know where I was for the long weekend.

Several months ago as I realized how old I would be on my next birthday
I decided I needed something to help me look forward to it.
A trip was planned for a long weekend just for me to explore and play.
San Francisco, by the bay, is a part of my heart and
on another day I will share more.
So I say if there is something you are not looking forward to,
plan something special just for you to make it all that more special.

It looks like heaven, Marilyn. What a joyful spot to be! The photos are lovely and it looks like the weather was on your side. I don't see the famous SF fog! Three cheers!

Did you see my heart? You know I left my heart in San Francisco! I went to college there, as you know, and it's a favorite place of mine. I'm so glad you spent time there to celebrate YOU. Thank you for sharing it with us.

I'm so glad the trip was enjoyed dear - the weather looked really lovely so I know you had fun getting about to see your favorite places. Photos are great - and of course SF is very familiar to me as I've been there often.........and I've loved it each time.

Welcome back, not sure when it is actually your birthday, but whenever, have a wonderful day. May it also be the start of a great year - and we'll get to meet at last - that's what I'm looking forward to!!

Warm hugs - Mary

Awesome photos Marilyn, what a special birthday treat. I turn 60 next year, and really want to do something special before that. I haven't decided yet, but I would love to go on a trip with my sisters.

Linda said...

Looks like you had a lovely long weekend break away in a special place.

What a wonderful way to celebrate. When my son and I make an almost annual trip to the Mayo Clinic, we have a special place we like to eat out as something to look forward to.
