I'm Gonna Party Like It's My Birthday...

Cause it is! Yes, its my 45th birthday and I feel fabulous! It started with a call from my mother- she calls me every year at the time I was born! When she called this time I was snuggling my own baby- what a blessing. I can't imagine my life without this little guy. Later I had a 90 minute massage, then a great workout. My husband (and baby) took me to lunch at Garozzo's one of my favorite Italian eateries. I had a few hours in the office working then a nice dinner at home with my family. It has been a lovely, sunny hot then rainy day. My annual birthday celebration will be Saturday. I've planned a garden party at the home of friends who have a great garden. My mother is catering the dinner, and I've hired a harpist to perform. We'll cap the evening the way all my birthday parties end, with a reading of my poetry. In lieu of gifts guests can donate to one of my favorite non-profits that I volunteer for. The theme of my party is "Bloom Where You Are Planted" and each guest will recieve a flower bulb to plant as a favor.

Happy Birthday! It sounds like you have a great party planned, and I always love plants as gifts. I love looking around at my plants and remembering each occasion that I got them at.

Again, Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!

I love this idea of the flowers..I think I will totally rip it off for my b-day next April.

Sounds like you had a super time, you deserve it. Way cool.

Thanks Housefairy,
Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery- please feel free to steal my ideas! My party is tonight so I'll write a post on how things go.

Listening to your poetic memories of your friends and family was a wonderful way to spend the evening, Sherry. Thank you for sharing your birthday with us.
