I am very blessed to be surrounded with beautiful people and lovely things. Thanks to all of my family and friends for treating me special all year long. And blogger friends, that make each day interesting and FUN!


I am celebrating my birthday this week and we’re going to make a little trip. It’s a really BIG birthday this year....one of those even ones that end in a zero...so my hubby wanted to do something FUN this year! I’ll take lots of photos and share them when we get back!

I hope you all have a wonderful week....full of beauty and all of God’s blessings.

A few of my gifts came early.....


sock monkey slippers from my sweet sister ... how cute!


Tea for one from my girlfriend, Kaila! THANK YOU!


And a big package of snacks, candy, cards, cute snowflakes


and handmade things from my youngest son and his sweet family.


This will be perfect to take on our little trip!


Talk to you when I get back! Hope you still recognize me! heeheehee!

All birthdays ending in 0 are worthy of big celebrations. Enjoy yourself and I look forward to hearing about it when you return. Those slippers are just too cute.

Happy Birthday Diane, I hope that you have a wonderful day and trip away.
Sorry I have not been over, as life seems to have been rather busy.
I look forward to hearing about your trip when you return.

Happy Get-Away with the one you love. I'm celebrating mine today and it's been amazing and fun...51 years and still going strong. I declare this year to be FUN for us both! I'm wondering where you are off too? Hmmmm...Europe, Hawaii, a Cruise? You have me in suspense. I'll have to wait till you spill the beans when you return. Have a blast!
