Maybe you remember from last year that I like to celebrate the whole month long?
We did lots of really wonderful things with my parents when they were here so I'm rolling that into the celebration list. Before the month is through, there's sure to be lots of cupcakes and sprinkles, virtual and otherwise. Just the thought of it makes my eyes twinkle. I really do love celebrating... and I love my birthday.
I was born on my maternal grandmother's birthday. That made it pretty special. It was also the first birthday of the calendar year for my family. And it is the first full day of Spring! Pretty special.
I've been fortunate all my life to be surrounded by people who are happy to help me make a big deal of my birthday. I think of it as my personal holiday. And I tell everyone I see that it is my birthday. I don't much care if it makes me seem a little nuts to the grocery store check-out lady.
I put together a few photos from all 'round as a sort of virtual birthday party for us.
Most images are from Mary Engelbreit's HC, with the exception of the muffin tin, party setting with yellows and oranges, cupcake liners (from Mathew Mead), and the wreath and petit fours are from Williams Sonoma)
