Of course, Lydia is also the queen of making birthday's so special. Can you believe she made this cake for me? I mean how perfect is this! Down the rabbit hole we go! I tell ya I didn't want to eat it at all. I made David wait two whole days before he, Captain and I binged on chocolate goodness and bunny feet! :) Love you bunches Lyd. Thank you so very much! I love this cake!
Several years ago I was told by someone "It's not ladylike to tell people your age." Well, since I've always been a tomboy, live in bluejeans, and I hate dresses and don't wear them unless I am forced to and since I'm truly grateful for every day I get to live, I don't mind telling people how old I am. I'm just so darn happy I've made it another year! Woo hoo! Plus, we all get old and get wrinkles. Look at them, be happy you are alive to see them, and get on with it already.
However, the change I'm experiencing now, which involves waking up in the middle of the night dripping wet, and crying like an absolute idiot at TV commercials like that darn Budweiser horse one is not exactly what I had in mind for a change. Hello hormones. I hear you are taking over for a few years. Nice. Real nice.
What I really have learned about myself is I am a pretty simple person. It doesn't take much to make me happy. Friends have asked me "So what are you doing for your birthday?" Well, I'm doing the same thing I do every single day.
I'm stitching a new design and looking at the wonders of nature outside my window.
I'm adding new "Folk Art Fusion" pieces to my design wall.
I'm sewing on my machine.
I'm having company meetings with Harrington and Hannah and discussing new designs. (My employee's are the best ever!)
Of course, the only thing I really don't enjoy about my job is the paperwork. Ick, gag, puke. Booooring! Make it go away!
I love what I do. I'm excited that next year I might get to meet you in person and share "Folk Art Fusion" with you. I love being my own boss as I am fabulous to work for! hee,hee,hee.
I am also grateful for the people I choose to spend my life with. David, my family, my local friends and you, my dear blog friend. You bring me joy, smiles, hugs and tons of happiness.
Thank you Kristin and Link, friends from my home building days.
Thank you Deece and Tag, my talented friends in sunny Florida.
Thank you Rachel and Speedy bunny from the UK. (Rachel got this for me when she was on vacation in Egypt! It's hand painted on papyrus. Cool huh?)
Thank you dear Jenny in Australia, my fellow designer and sister at heart.
Thank you Mom and Oliver! I looooooooove these! Yes, I am a Starbucks fanatic and I collect Starbucks mugs.
Thank you Mom and Oliver! I've seen this in magazines and have always wanted this! Woo hoo! It's a doorstop y'all. Cool!
So down the rabbit hole I go on this my 45th year. Join me won't you? We are sure to have lots of fun and we can grow old and get laughing wrinkles together. I'll be the one in the bunny hat. :)
Love, hugs and friends always,
