Birthdays are worth celebrating!!!

Well, another birthday has come and gone.  I turned 39 (for the first time) last Friday, the 15th.  Yes, tax day.
I gladly celebrate each birthday and in fact look forward to them.  That one day of the year is MY day.  My day to do whatever I please.  MY day not to do the dishes.  My day to request hugs from my handsome fella all day long .  .. . . and I did . . . and he delivered many warm strong hugs to his precious birthday gal. 

He truly "gets" me and I'm grateful he loves me for all my traits, quirkiness included. 

So, I can happily report that amidst the relentless little tasks that must be completed as I prepare for Spring Market in Salt Lake City, Utah (in a mere 4 weeks - - holy crap!) I made time to savor #39.  For I believe every birthday is a hugely important day in one's life that begs to be celebrated. 

Imagine my surprise when the local florist pulled into the driveway & came in the office with this gorgeous floral bouquet.  Which by the way, contained beer and chocolate!  The perfect birthday meal of course.  My Missouri parents, Peggy and Skip sent these to me - - totally unexpected, and oh so excited I was.  Carrie took this ever so glamorous picture of me, so I could share it with . . . well . . . who ever wants to . . . hey wait, I'm not sharing those chocolates or the beer!  Oh, perhaps with that handsome gent who gave me all the birthday hugs.  Tee Hee!

Did I get anything accomplished on my birthday?  Not much . . . . other than 2 more brand new patterns that are ready for release any second!  
That's a great topic for my next blog!  Peek back in a day - - I'll have 2 new designs ready to grace your peepers.

Til next time . . . .thanks for peeking in on me. 


  1. As an April 11 birthday celebrant I wholeheartedly agree that we should cherish each and every one. I am proud of my 56 years and still looking forward to counting many more. I too got lots of great hugs from my fella. Happy Belated!
