I'm a romantic. I love birthdays. I happen to celebrate mine this past week. I am not an ego maniac. I just like to view the birthday as a Happy New Year of sorts. It's when the sun and the stars and the planets line up to that same place as they were the day you were born. A fresh new start...on the journey.
I didn't have any expectations for the day, but my handsome gave me daisies as he has done every year since I was 23. (Kevin, my husband...not my dog.)
He also surprised with a set of Corinthian Bells. I have wanted them for such a long time. I immediately hung them by my front door. (Feng Shui principle.) They make the most beautiful music...and my house is filled with JOY!
I "frosted it up" with my family at my favorite restaurant, Alchemy! I was so happy to spend it with my parents and in-laws too. My daughter Libbie created a beautiful piece of artwork, and minutes before this photo was taken my Madeline scored 2 goals in her soccer game.
My sweet friend Nicole D'Alton Gilfillan remembered how I said I love to hear violins! She remembered a beautiful story she once heard on I tunes and recollected the music. She burned me the CD of that very music, knit this cute heart and wrote a sweet card. Friendship. She has taught me/ reminded me to really "listen" . What a great lesson. I feel so inspired I just had to share...I hear violins!
There is no place in the country like Miss Cayce's. It is the most magical place in the LAND! Thank you Miss Cayce's and West Texas for the fabulous FROSTY party this past weekend. Your land is rich in oil...but your people are richer in kindness and hospitality!!! Thank you, thank you for supporting my work, my mission to spread cheer throughout the LAND, for supporting my momma and her battle with Alzheimer's. The donations that you're making to the Alzheimer's Association are so generous.
