Happy Birthday, to Me


This is the weirdest post to write. I am not someone that makes a big deal about my birthday. Most years I would have preferred to pretend it didn’t happen. But since so many of you asked when my birthday was today is it.  I am 48 years old today. *cough, cough*  Thanks Rose for being the first one to say Happy B'day. :-)

Dan is taking today off to spend with me. I am thrilled to have my best friend home today. Other than a conference call mid-day I get him all to myself today. That is the best present he could give me.

I will be back later to fill you on the details of the day. I hope you are all having a great Monday, I know I will.

    Our day is starting out well. We slept in (my favorte thing) and just had breakfast. Sun would have been appreciated, but the rain wouldn't ruin my day. Thanks again.

    talk to you later,

    Thanks, so far so good! But the hubby tells me there are more suprises in store. He is apparently making them last all day.

    I hope you are having a great day too!

  16. Party on, dear Ali! :-)

    Sending you wishes for a perfectly delightful day, and hoping the celebration lasts all week! :-)

    May the sun bring you new energy every day.
    May the moon softly restore you by night.
    May the rain wash away your worries.
    May the breeze blow new strength into your being.
    May you walk gently through the world
    and know its beauty all the days of your life.

    Enjoy the happiest of birthdays, Ali!
    Love, La

  17. 'Buon Compleanno'! I hope that translates to Happy Birthday, I don't speak Italian, so I looked it up, and am trusting it's correct. I hope you have a wonderful day with your sweetie, Alicia!!

  27. La,

    My friend Louis thinks b'day festivities should last an entire month. He may be on to something. If I give it a try I will let you know if he is right. ;-)

    thanks for the b'day wishes,

  29. Janet,

    Grazie Mille (thank you very much)! That was very sweet of you to look up the Italian phrase. :-)

    thanks again,

  30. Emma,

    Thank you so much, definitely wiser I agree. My poor husband probably wants me to stop learning new "nutritional ways to torture him" as he likes to tell me in a joking way. LOL! Good think I understand his sense of humor isn't it? :-)

    thanks again,
    Alicia

  31. VLD,

    Happy Birthday to you too! You are the first person I know with the same b'day. :-) I hope your day was as good as mine.

  32. Claude,

    I hope you find someone you adore as much as I do my Dan. As someone that had a "starter husband" I can tell you that marriage is much better when you are with the right one.

    Thanks for the b'day wishes,
    Alicia

  33. Courtney,

    talk to you later,

  34. Shenandoah,

    I never thought much about age until the last few years when I started to "see the years catching up with me". In my mind I am still 20 something, LOL. Thanks for the b'day wishes.

  35. Laura,

    Thanks, I am working on extending those years. Glad b'days only come once a year. ;-) Thanks for the b'day wishes.

  41. Well, only a WEEK late, but Happy Belated Birthday! (Clearly I need to catch up on my Google Reader). ;) Hope it was a fantastic day and that you had a great time with Dan. I'll look forward to reading about it in your later posts (hopefully won't take another week)! :D
