Happy Birthday Lynn!

Someone oh so special out there in blogland is celebrating her birthday today. Hmmmm...could it be LYNN???!!! Yep. Definitely is! Do stop by her blog, give her a big e-hug, and wish her a happy, happy birthday. Lynn is such a sweetheart. She's kind and caring, shares her family with us all - and what an amazing and handsome group of young men she's a mom to..., she's always encouraging, she's a fun and gentle soul, and her smile lights the world, doesn't it just??!! I'm very blessed to call her friend. It seemed right to celebrate and since it wouldn't be a birthday without a party let's get to it!

A little wine to start off...

No ice bucket? No problem.

Some pretty and casually elegant party decorations

Gorgeous wedding lights for a rustic reception vibe

A few flowers
