Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes, today is the big 2-9!

I remember when my uncle turned 29, my mom found a card for him with a sort of wink-wink, nudge-nudge, oh SURE you're 29 theme. Because, after all, this is where people stop and hold, and refuse to go on to 30.

But I really am 29.

And I'll be perfectly happy to be 30 next year, as long as I get cake and presents for it.

I mean, overall, my 20s haven't been that great. They're shaping up nicely NOW, but they're almost done! Which means my 30s are poised to be thoroughly fabulous.

So, bring it on, Time. One second per second, I'm moving forward.

Now, just as I was getting ready to post this, I got a call from the office receptionist, telling me I should go up front because there was a package I had to sign for. So I did. And what do you suppose I found? A perfectly gorgeous bouquet of flowers from my Tirithien, eleven red roses and one white, with baby's breath and a soft purple "background" flower I don't know the name of, tied with a huge red ribbon. Thank you, my love! :-)

Awww....that is so sweet! And Happy Birthday to you! (Double your coming age and you have what I will turn in a few days)!

Tirithien said...

Yes, Happy Birthday, my love. :-D Glad you like the flora.

Happy Birthday to you as well.
See I do stop by here from time to time.

Extra points for the flower sending dear!

Happy Happy! Joy Joy! Hope you're having a wonderful day!

I knew May babies were cool. :) (Though I ain't turning 29 this May, at least not for the first time...)

May babies ARE cool! Bainwen's Grandma was a May baby, as well as her uncle, and Martie! VERY cool. Hope you had a wonderful day, Sweetie! You don't look a day over 20!

Have a very Happy Birthday in a few days, Martie...;o)
You too, Beth!!!

Yikes! I meant to write Martie AND Beth under cool May babies... please forgive me Beth. Must have coffee...!

Bainwen, your thirties are going to be so great, with an attitude like that. So much to look forward to!

OMIGOSH! I'm sorry this is a day late but I hope you had a wonderful birthday!!!

Like you, my 20s weren't the best, but they really shaped up at the end. I think you'll absolutely fluorish in your final 20's year and right into your 30's.

Again, Happy birthday! XOXOXO

P.S. Nice job on the flowers, Tirithien. Practical women will tell you they are a waste of money, but I don't know anyone who isn't thrilled to get them now and then. ;)
