Louis LOVES to celebrate my birthday….more than I do actually.  I love him all the more for it.  My birthday conflicts each year with Memorial Day and/or the Greek Fest….falling either on one or the other.  But, that’s OK.  Because it extends my birthday usually for a week!  Lots of little surprises along the way.

May 31st is my birthday…and this year…also Memorial Day.  So, we had a cookout.  Louis called it my birthday cookout; and I called it a Memorial Day cookout.  We had a great time with friends and neighbors on a windy HOT HOT day!

I am soooo blessed with a wonderful, loving husband, fabulous community of family, friends and neighbors! Thanks for a GREAT evening!  Love you all!!!

One of the birthday surprises was a new camera. Still learning how to use it…but enjoy them none the less.  Maybe next year I will get photography lessons! LOL
