I have the best friends....

This Labor Day weekend was spent, well, laboring.  I finished staining our deck (finally ~ never again to be a one-woman job...what was I thinking?) and we worked on our landscaping.  It wasn't all work, though, since I did manage to celebrate my birthday a few times ~ with the hubby on my day, with my folks last night and on Sunday, Kelli planned a girls trip to The Artful Ewe in Port Gamble just for me!  Awesome.  We had a great time strolling around the one road town and doing a little shopping.  We capped the day off with a lovely picnic lunch of fried chicken, watermelon and a homemade carrot cake (thankyou thankyou thankyou, Carrie!) followed by some wonderful gifts.  Thanks to everyone that made my birthday one to remember.  It was perfect!  ~ Melissa


  1. Happy birthday! You do have some great friends :) I hope the sun shines brightly so you can enjoy your deck.

  2. Karen ~ the last 4 or 5 days have been the nicest weather we've had all summer ~ almost worth the long long dreary wait ;)

    and I'm planning on getting every minute of use I can on my pretty deck before the fall rains come!
