Happy AND Thanksgiving

Recently, I celebrated a birthday. It was a routine day, but I spent quality time with my family. It used to be that I desired fanfare to celebrate the miraculous fact that I existed: fireworks, a parade and an elaborate banquet. These days a colorful card on construction paper, a pair of socks to keep my always-cold-feet warm and a friend who calls to sing Happy Birthday in the silliest way does just fine. Those things light up my sky because  in some sweet, original, genuine way, they are all mine. So happy birthday, to me.

I am also gearing up to celebrate Thanksgiving...and boy oh boy do I have a lot to be thankful for, don't we all? Please click on over to Ladies Holiday to fine out what I'm grateful for.

And to all of you, dear readers, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  1. Happy birthday and thanksgiving! What a fun time of year!

  2. Happy Happy DAY!! Oh, how times have changed, eh?
    I love homemade cards and dinner w/my family--beyond that, all I see is dollar signs, and that makes me nervous.

    Hope your birthday was stellar and this next year brings you much joy!
