The Bear and the Unicorn

For my recent suxteee-seckth birthday, I celebrated with my big ole’ modern family …

… at Savannah’s Tequila’s Town restaurant in Sandfly.

(Seriously?  Can you believe they come hooting “Happy Bday” laden with tequila for the celebrant!  Even though I had my large head prepared for an oversized sombrero and some flan.)

Post-tequila I received some neat gifts, but perhaps my Favorites came from five-year-old grandtwins Madison (inappropriately pictured above next to the tequila) and Matthew. Their mom let them pick out their gifts for me.  Madison gave me a pink unicorn in a love mug …

…while Matthew opted for a brown bear that actually smells like chocolate when you rub it vigorously!

(Matthew is in an over-smiling-for-the-camera stage.)

Oh, they also each got me a large skein of yarn–yellow from Madison and green from Matthew.  Not that I knit (who has the patience for that?!), but because they like to unravel the yarn, make giant spiderwebs and throw it all over the furniture and each other.

Thus, inspired by the tequila, when I got home I opted for a quick photoshoot to document my suxteee-seckth.

Moral of Story:  the strangest little gifts ofttimes make for the biggest shots of … Joy.

Spitting image of his grandfather!

2.  A beautifully invigorating two hours at the Laurel Grove Cemetery here in Savannah this week.  (I had never gone before.)

As I walked through the moss-laden oaks, I was mesmerized by the power of time to take back into the earth all that belongs to her.  All.

Okay, I’ll stop even though I kept taking pictures.  I love cemeteries.  They are such celebrations of LIFE.

3.  Meals this week.  (All from the Forsyth Farmers Market here in Savannah.)

I LOVE strolling in my Savannah Historic District neighborhood during any season of the year.  But, oh my, Spring!
