fishgirl birthday



Truly a spectacular day to cherish forever. Scott made a celebration for me that lasted all day long. Began my day with signs of love and tons of well wishes sent by email and facebook. Thank you all for your birthday wishes! Then I had a massage at the spa while Scott corralled the Marriott staff to surprise me when I returned to the room. Special thanks to Elizabeth Shackleton of Marriott Guest Relations for helping Scott organize Scott’s vision for my birthday.


Once again, Chef Samantha did an outstanding cake design. Like the roulette wheel cake she made for Scott’s birthday party last month, Samantha pulled out all the stops to make my fishgirl cake very personal ( note the mini Spanish treasure coins– or are they casino chips?– with 55 written on them that you-know-who helped Sam come up with). By the way, Sam is wearing the chef hat on the right of the photo.

I got my wish for lots of flowers. Scott gave me tiger lillies to remind me of Maine and a tower of roses ( that’s me taking time out to stop and smell them)…the spa team gave me a bouquet of red
and white carnations and our nurse Gang brought me a beautiful basket of orchids.



The pretty blue floral patterned kurta that Ritu, Indra, and Sanjiv sent me rivals the many flowers I received today. My sweetheart melted my already mushy heart to such a puddle today and put a real sparkle in my eyes (and ears)! I am the luckiest of all luck dogs today. Now we are watching our favorite romantic adventure classic on streaming video,Last of the Mohicans, even though we’ve seen it 37 times. We know every word by heart …I will find you…thank you Scott for finding me!
