(Me, a long time ago, somewhere in Alvin, Texas. Check out the early 80's hair.)
I love BIRTHDAYS. And not just my OWN. (Though it is today.) I love the whole IDEA of birthdays. Celebrating another human being because they are HERE on this EARTH we all share.
My friend Jan, has taught me that we should celebrate the ENTIRE MONTH of our birth. And it seems that is just what I have done.
Some of those things have included: LUNCHES with dear friends (old and new); attending a festive NEW MOVIE with my family; trying a QUAINT new restaurant with them; getting a haircut; attending the annual ART & SOUP celebration in SLC (chaired by my awesome longtime friend/roomie Robbie) with my husband and mom; having a 'face-to-face' chat with my favorite KSL radio host, Doug Wright; enjoying a fabulous HOMEMADE DINNER with our friends, the Raybacks (coconut cake masterpiece included); my husband recovering well after his accident; delightful surprise gifts on my doorstep; a beautiful song from the Spring Creek Concert Choir; walks in the springtime SUNSHINE; more NEW SHOES from my husband; buying some NEW BOOKS; a phone call from my brother reminding me he is still two years YOUNGER than me; cards in the mail, phone calls, and lovely songs and treats from my vocal students, and a PURPLE BIRTHDAY CAKE by Coryn.
How much more can a girl be CELEBRATED??
