Congratulations! And other points of interest!

Today, my niece Naomi, graduates from nursing school. I'm so happy for her. Here are a couple of candles lit in her honor and the two bleeding heart blooms in the picture are symbolic of the intensity of her efforts. She did this while being a wife to her hubby and mommy to four...and a list as long as my arm of other things. Congratulations Naomi! Celebrate!!
In other news here at "A Romantic Porch", it is time for the birthday give-away drawing. Drum roll please and will the "official winner picker" please step to the podium.
#13!! Scrambling to computer to see which person left comment #13...hurry 1,2,3,4,...let's see...um, yes #13 throwing hands in air...there it is, IT IS SHERI from A Pawsh Poodle!! Yay! Sheri! Email me with your address, and a parcel of things I love will be on their way to you! Congratulations! Thank you for your encouragement to just go ahead and eat the heart shaped brownie!

Thank you each and every one wherever and whoever you are for making my "surprise birthday party" such a fun success!

And in the spirit of Saturday morning...once again, I bring to you ...the guessing game. What do you think is in the picture above?
Have a fun filled action packed super de duper Saturday.
Love, Rachel

It's the second picture you posted on your birthday-a very good hot cup of coffee and a heart shaped brownie. Yum again! I love continuing celebrations.

Congratulations to Naomi, also.

Wow, anybody who is married with four kids and manages that feat gets my applause! Good for her. She must be one energetic and determined young lady. As my husband is a doctor, I know how desperately we need good, dedicated nurses.

When did that old polar bear start drinking coffee? As my grandpa would say, "That'll put hair on his chest!" And the last thing he needs is more hair when summer is nearly here!
