A Dozen Roses

What a treat today (my 42 birthday) to see these beautiful roses carried in to my office... a surprise gift from my wonderful husband.  The arrangement was extraordinary.  Each rose more beautiful than the one next to it.  Fortunately, I had my (big) camera with me so I was able to take a few shots before I left.  This one is my favorite.  It almost looks fake.

I've had a great day.  At this writing, there are more than 60 birthday greetings posted to my Facebook page and many more through text, email, phone calls and messages.  Thank you to everyone who has sent their wishes my way today.  I am truly blessed.
