Homespun fun

We celebrated DD's 23rd birthday this weekend. She requested a favorite meal and we had homemade cake and homemade ice cream. For entertainment, we watched old home movies and played board games. It was perfect.

There have been birthdays when we have gone out for expensive dinners and not had nearly as much fun. Yet another reminder to me that money can't buy happiness. And going further into debt to pay for it is so not worth it.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday!

  11. After a week of extra expenses (hot water heater, grad pic) it must have been such a wonderful relief to have such a great time with family at such a low cost. Years from now it will be DD's party that you will remember.

  12. As my nieces and nephews start making the next generation, that is always my advice to them: simple family together time is the greatest richness.
