What a wonderful day! Starting with Happy Birthday wishes from my husband and son, followed by a call from my dearest friend Kathy. And, throughout the day, birthday wishes on Facebook and Twitter, as well as a delightful call from my mother-in-law.
Our perfect ending to a day filled with love and affection is my annual clam bake on my birthday. We are driving an hour to Maine to my favorite restaurant for clam bakes http://www.robertsmainegrill.com/. They load a giant pot with clams, mussels, lobsters, corn and sausage with seaweed between the layers. As they open the pot in front of me, I am transported back to my youth, when my family would dig a pit on the beach and fill it with coals, seaweed and seafood. It always conjures happy memories for me. So, before I go for my seafood walk down memory lane, I want to take a moment to thank you all for making this a wonderful day. Love you all.
