June 14th is Flag Day in the United States.
It also happens to be my birthday. Today is the 63rd anniversary.
Like Dani's brother, who happens to share the exact same birthday(see her tribute to him at http://oklhdan-musingsamiddleagedwoman.blogspot.com/2011/06/happy-birthday-flag-boy.html)*, I was told that my birthday was so special that everyone put their flags out in celebration.
Oh, the lies we tell our children, but that is another post entirely...
Mike and I spent the morning walking on the beach and the afternoon floating around in the motel pool. Tonight we will go out for a nice dinner. The moon will be nearly full so later we will sit out by the pool into the warm evening, sipping a good wine and planning the future.
And my present this year is big--we will spend the upcoming weekend in Savannah. This is something I really want to do and something, being a city involved, Mike would prefer to avoid. So it is special and it has made me happy--without even getting there yet. I have to hope we like it.
And then we have to go back to the hotel in Beaufort, S.C., where Mike left his pillow. I hope the staff could discern the importance of that pillow and are holding it for our return.

Blogger is trying to convince us all that we get what we pay for, maybe?
