A Double Birthday Celebration: Stef and Stacey!

This week marked the 25th birthdays of two of our friends and neighbors, so we had to celebrate!  Stacey and her hubby Nathan and Stefanie and her hubby Jeff joined us for dinner out, and then lots of different homemade sweets at our house afterward. Stacey's birthday is today, the 24th, and Stefanie's was the 19th so we combined them into one cozy celebration.
  Rob baked earlier in the day and made carrot cake cupcakes, chocolate raspberry cupcakes and we tossed in apple pastries and blueberry scones, topping it all off with coffee! 
L to R: Nathan, Jeff, Stef, Stacey, Tom (Rob took the picture!)
   It was a fun way to celebrate and the weather was perfect so we enjoyed sitting on our sun porch (something that we hadn't been able to do up until three weeks ago when winter weather finally disappeared).

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
