Birthday Blessings

Just looking at that cupcake makes me happy.

I love celebrating my birthday. It's one of those joys that carried over from childhood that never lost its magic for me. Aging doesn't bother me much(except for the winkles) as long as year after year I can be surrounded by friends and loved ones who enjoy my company as much as I enjoy theirs. For me, it's a sad day indeed if it can't be spent doing something I love with someone I love. Today, I got just what I wished for.

There was shopping, eating, smiling, laughing, more shopping, and lots of yummy chocolate, from the heart shaped box of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to the Dove Chocolate rose to the Baskin Ribbon's chocolate peanut butter ice cream. Can you tell I like my chocolate and peanut butter to be on intimate terms with each other? I did a little bit of everything I enjoy the most, including browsing my favorite used book store.

For me the best part of having a birthday is being able to share as much of it with others as I can so I'd like to wish each of you a Happy Unbirthday that is just as glorious as my birthday has been. May you be blest with good food, good company, and lots of happiness.

I'm glad you had a happy birthday. I love chocolate and peanut butter too. You've got to try peanut butter M & Ms.

Happy Birthday! I love me some birthdays too! My husband and I were born a day apart, so I get the first half of July to celebrate and he gets the last part! Ha! Works for us!
