Just perfect

That just about describes my day.  Today was my birthday!!  And I couldn't have had a better day if I tried.  Yep, I'm 39......again (well a few times over if the truth be told)

I woke up to find birthday presents on the kitchen table, then I arrived at work and was delivered a muffin with a candle in it and a coffee.  (and several minutes later I spilled half that coffee all over my white silk shirt and had to go home and change)  And even THAT didn't dampen my mood.  The sun was shining and all was good!

There were multiple deliveries of other treats throughout the workday, lots of calls and emails, a birthday cake from the staff.  I did miss one special call, but did get the voicemail.  You know who you are - you made my day!  A couple of dear friends took me out and treated me to lunch.

The afternoon was much of the same.  Isn't it great to have a day that is all about you......LOL

This is one of the cards I received today and just had to share it with you.  It's perfect and just cracked me up.  The sender of this card knows me well ;)

   And it is even better when you can stretch out the fun for more than just one day.  Tomorrow night I am going out to dinner with a group of girlfriends.  It's our turn to Howl!    Look out Downtown - middle aged women on the loose!!

Happy, happy, birthday my friend....You deserve every bit of cherishing you received....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (I'm back for the time being - yes, the tornadoes materialized, but both missed us by a mile or two....Missing some shrubbery in the front of the nest, and have some strange branches in strange places, but we're safe and ok....)

  9. Sounds like you had the very best day. I remember long ago, when I used to work and everybody made such a special deal over our birthdays. I think it's great. You feel so special all day long. I'm glad that you are not through celebrating either. Give little Millie and big high five for conquering the water dish!
