all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Once Upon A Midnight Dreary...

Pics of our first annual Halloween Costume party. You know it's a good party when you wake up in the morning to 2 days worth of dishes, witches hats sitting askew on your dogs head and discarded clothing (and hats and machine guns) scattered among the sprayed silly string on the living room floor.

And the winner of the "Most Creative Costume award goes to" Sperm Man

Nothing on Earth so beautiful as the final haul on Halloween night.

The Big 5-0

Yikes! October meant another birthday. Now I've reached the "milestone" 50th year.

What a great surprise party Allen planned for me, with allot of help from some friends. It took place under a tent next to The Wine Bin on a gorgeous, gorgeous, sunny Sunday afternoon.
The recipe for such a perfect party- Beautiful florals, fabulous food (a lunch of salmon, filet and shrimp), wonderful music by a solo guitarist, Luscious cake filled with lemon mousse and raspberry, good wine (and martinis). But most importantly the love of my dear family and friends.

Loving Family
