Birthday: Saturday, 10/20

My last post was about girl's night out - the night before my birthday - on Friday night.
My actual birthday was Saturday the 20th.
My day began with a hair appointment at 8:00 a.m.  I arrived before anyone was at the shop.

Following my hair appointment, I met Doug for brunch at Michael's Uptown Cafe.

 Why I love a birthday in October:
 Another reason I love an October birthday:
After brunch Doug and I went to the Farmer's Market where Doug bought a ginormous mum for me.  Isn't it beautiful? I always have a big pumpkin (he brought one home to me last week) and a big mum at the end of the drive.
After Farmer's Market we went home and got ready to go to my friend's son's wedding in Indianapolis.  It was in an old historic downtown Indianapolis church.  The reception was at the Ritz-Charles in Carmel.  The wedding and reception was a great place to spend my birthday.  My friend has always been there for me and my family and it was our pleasure and privilege to be there at her son's wedding.  We ate, we talked, we raised money for Lou Gehrig's disease, we drank, we danced.
Donna and me
Donna and I were born the same year, three days apart.  Her birthday was October 17.  She will forever be my "older" friend.  We've been friends for twenty-three years. 
All in all, I had a truly wonderful birthday.  (Anyone notice anything different from my previous post?)

Awwwwwhhhh... thank you for putting me in your blog! And for talking about the wedding. Thank you Kris for the compliment. Half of the joy of a big day like that is having those we love there, supporting us. Your outfit is smashing! And the hair? It is a DO! Not a DON'T! I just love it. Bloomington has to be the coolest city! So many great things to see and do right out your front door. That mum is MIGHTY! Thank you for taking photos for us. They are the only ones I have seen yet and it's great to have them.
