Yesterday I got to start celebrating my birthday, one day early. My long-time girlfriends took me out for coffee Friday morning. Aren’t lifetime friends wonderful? I’ve known Cathy since college days, almost 30 years ago. I met Susan when I was newly married and I watched her 2 sons in the nursery, over 25 years ago. Rebecca and I met when we started homeschooling in the late 1990’s.
I wish I had a photo to share…but they might not like that because I had 2 conditions.
1. No Gifts
2. No makeup
In the afternoon, my parents dropped off some furniture and gave me a mini-cake. Finally, my sister, Jennifer, drove down from Ft Worth and spent the night.
This morning, Steve brought home hot Shipley’s donuts. If you’ve never had melt-in-your-mouth Shipleys, you haven’t had the best donut in the world – even better than Krispy Kreme & Dunkin Donuts.
Tonight my kids are fixing our dinner, including a triple chocolate cheesecake. I’ll post it on the blog tomorrow.
Besides writing this email, I am taking it easy…reading The Help (so I can watch the movie) and digital scrapbooking.
So you’re wondering about your gift???
I have a freebie on my blog (see below)
If the freebies/gifts or my new website/blog has been helpful to you, would you post a comment on one of my blog posts. I’ve recently shared my first free printable (Valentine Word Problems), as well as started a series on “love of learning”. I wanted to relate my blog posts to love & Valentine’s Day.
Choose a post that means something to you & post a comment.
Or, share that link with your friends on facebook, twitter, linked in or your own blog.
Talk to you tomorrow about our next Gift 🙂
