This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

What a wonderful day...

Thank you everyone for your thoughtful birthday wishes!  I felt very warm and fuzzy with all my phone calls.

My youngest daughter was the first to call  early this morning, (unless I count my sister's "Happy Birthday Eve" phone call last night...) followed by a serenade from my two grandsons and eldest daughter.  My sister sent me a b'day text and email.  More phone calls and emails from dear friends in California, and my Mom.  All my Facebook friends, plus two of my brothers wished me a happy 29th... :}

My daughter in law called me on my way to meet my husband for lunch.  He came home tonight with my beautiful card and gifts...plus, took me out to dinner and then a little gambling.  Another girlfriend from California called me during dinner. What a spoiled gal am I....

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all my blogging friends for remembering me. You all, are the icing on my cupcake!

Hopefully there was epic merriment or at least a cupcake.

Laoch: Ooooohhhh I love cupcakes...but alas, it was cheese cake for my "freebie" b'day treat at dinner. I was too full to eat but a few bites. "Epic eating" was a more accurate description...but there was definitely merriment!

My apologies and belated Happy Birthday to you, Donna! I'm lucky enough to know you in real life and can tell your readers that you're just as funny, touching, and warm in person as you are in your blog. I love you! Here's to a fantastic year ahead!
