Happy Birthday to Me!

Birthday Princess!
I swear to God you'd think I was two years old. I am such a big, fat, spoiled baby on my birthday! Try though I may not, I just can't help myself! The universe chose this special day to bring me into this world, so I feel I owe the universe a big thank you in the form of complete self-gratification. I realize this is a completely un-transformed point of view, but what the hell. It's my birthday! I'll get all Zen again tomorrow. For now, I will eat sugar all day, write to my heart's content, drink wine later with my friend, Cindy, who shares my birthday (how cool is that?!), and then have a wonderful dinner out with my family. And, woo-hoo, I'll open my presents at dinner - I can hardly wait! Although, Chuck and I decided to skip gift-giving this year, I thankfully have presents from my sisters to open and, shockingly enough, even from my sons! (Will wonders never cease?) My parents graciously bought us two of the four plane tickets we're using next week to spend the week in Denver, and the gift of family is indeed the greatest gift of all. (Even a two-year old knows that.)

So, please join me in song as we wish me a Happy Birthday:

Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday to me

Happy birthday dear, Debbie

Happy birthday to me
(And many more!)

Special thanks to the blog Crochet*d*Lane for the wonderful picture of baby Zella above. I was not nearly as cute and here's the proof:

Sarah, Thanks so much!

BPV: Andrea Bocelli's got nothing on you. Thanks so much for that rousing performance. If you get the chance, burn me a CD of it so I can play it every year. Like Bill Lumbergh says in the movie Office Space, "That'd be great."

According to my computer, you have 43 more minutes to party! Hop to it!!

(The snow is being nice enough to wait till you're done celebrating.)

BTW, I beg to differ about your baby pictures; the photographic evidence shows massive quantities of cuteness.

Dear FL, You're way too kind re: my baby pics. I have a girlfriend in Denver who told me I look like a boy. Holy smoke. Anyway, thank you so very much. It is now the 19th, so I have another blink of an eye year to wait until my special day again. As much as I love them, they're coming far too quickly these days..!

Happy birthday lovey! Sorry I didn't stop in before now, twas a tad busy... hope it was a good one!

Thank you, Elizabeth! It was a beautiful day. I love my birthday, even when, like this one, I'm just hanging out by myself and writing all day. I did have a wonderful dinner with my family as well. There's just always something special about the day. I hope you feel that way as well. I wish everyone did.
