Today I am 52. I was going to do a self portrait but after snapping a few photos I thought I owed it to myself to wait for a professional sitting and someone who could do an expert job of retouching the photos.
Happy birthday to me.
When I walked out to the dining room this greeted me.
I'm thinking cake for breakfast,(it's gorgeous isn't it? made by Victoria) it's my birthday after all, and then I see the card.
Is this not amazing? Victoria made this for me too. It is all cutwork with the most beautiful message inside. It's getting framed. I love it. I love it more than the cake, (I think. I need to try the cake so I can be sure, but when the cake is gone, I'll still have the beautiful card:>)
Thanks for everything, the gorgeous flowers, the cake and the card. I love  you sweet baby!

  17. Happy Birthday Kathy! The treasures you received will last a lifetime! The card will be saved and the cake will be a delicious memory.

    I do hope you won't quit the blog world. We all go through dry spells, and your plate is obviously extra full these days. You just have to wait it through, and not worry about it.

    Enjoy your day! ::Jill
