Happy Birthday to you!

Today is HIS birthday, yes, Mr. Romantic Porch! If you knew him, you'd want to spend the day with him too! Come on over. We love company. We'll have some lemon cake and homemade ice cream later. I'm glad we have another birthday to celebrate together. He's the one who makes the sizzle and sparkle happen here at the porch. I just light the candles!

So Philip, we're squinting into the sunshine, but I like that better than looking sadly into the shadows. Yep, facing the sun, pursuing another year, all from the open door of "a romantic porch".

You're the best!
I love you always,

So... does "RP" stand for "Romantic Porch"?? Or Rachel & Philip?? Hmm... I think it's a romantic twist!

Hope you had a great day, Philip! Now you've caught up with your nephew in age again. (Your wife's niece's husband is your nephew, right?)
