My mate’s birthday ~

Today is Jennifer’s birthday.

It’s a big one.

So I got her a present – a Camino pendant, made by the jeweller who made my Camino ring which Jennifer gave me when I turned 60 a couple of years back.

John Tarasin had designed the ring based on a photo I took of the large shell on the exterior wall of the Cathedral at Santiago de Compostela.

He used that same design to do this pendant for Jennifer. So it’s a replica in miniature of the St. James symbol on the outside wall of the Cathedral.

Soon, in May, we’re walking the Camino Portuguese again with a group of carers from New Zealand.

The Camino continues to resonate in our lives.

And Jennifer continues to grow more beautiful with every passing year.

  3. Hiya Bill…

    Why did knowing it’s Jens birthday make me cry…?

    I feel so lucky to know the two of you, and I wish Jen every happiness in the world on her birthday and every day.

    Tell her I owe her a letter and will get on it…. I’ve been in the doldrums and it’s kept me from communicating. My M. O. ,as it were.

    BTW, the necklace is lush…I’m sure she loved it.

    Love and kisses, Patty

    • Hi Patty, Jen will reply tomorrow by email, but just to say that we think of you so often, with such enormous love and affection, and we think about the fun we’ve had with you and the fun that’s to come too – You are a very special lady.


  4. Happy Birthday, Jen
    The best is yet to come, hope you enjoyed your special day and your beautiful gift.


  5. Happy Birthday Jennifer. I agree, you continue to get more beautiful each year since I have known you. And, of course, a beautiful pendant and thoughtful husband.
