Today is my birthday & I want to thank all of my sweet friends that have sent me BDay wishes, phone calls, cards, & goodies!!!!  I am celebrating with Hubby today.  And IF I could choose my cake it would be the one above…  Isn’t it 2Die4?  This beauty was created by my friend Mary over at Home Is Where The Boat Is (click HERE to visit & you are in for a treat… she is a fabulous designer, decorator, cook & sweet friend).  She did this cake for a tablescape & I fell in LOVE with it.  She said I could borrow it for my birthday cake… So again…. THANK YOU SWEET FRIENDS for all the well wishes!  

I have to say BDay’s don’t elicit the same wonder they did as a child but, as Hubby says… any day this side of the dirt is a good one!  MEN!  And to put it into perspective… My six year old grandson said to his brother who had just had a birthday… “So Bubba you’re 11 now”?  His brother proudly puffed out his chest & said “YEAH”  to which little bit remarked… “You still look the same”.   

HUGS! Charlene

Hello my friend and a very happy birthday to you. Yours is very close to mine as I'm turning 70 on Flag Day! That's a big one and I wonder how the heck I got there so fast. Do you wonder that too?

Happy Birthday and I love what your husband said that any birthday is a celebration this side of the dirt! What a cake! What a cake! Also congrats on your new trailer. I have just learned about the vintage trailers and I think they are sooooo much fun...would love one even on my property for some alone time. Make mine red like a big strawberry. Joni
