. . . a very happy birthday, indeed!!!

Today was a quiet, simple, happy day!!!  

With a hectic show schedule, there just wasn't much time to 

celebrate my birthday, so I chose carefully . . . .

I've wanted to visit "The Passionate Home" in Langley, B.C., after 

catching a post on Carrie's shop after The Farm Chicks
Show in Spokane, Washington.  Carrie and her

friends had a GREAT time in Spokane,

and I just knew I had to meet

her in person . . . so 

glad I did!!  

The next 5 photos are also of Carrie's shop . . . I 

just KNOW you're drooling

. . . aren't you?!!!

Because MY birthday is also CANADA's birthday, it was

waaaay too busy for me up north, so we actually

headed straight back to Bellingham to 

enjoy an early dinner here:

Giuseppe's Italian Restaurant is every bit as good

as it looks . . . it's even on Bellingham 

Bay with a gorgeous view

of all the yachts!

What a life . . . what a sweet celebration of my life!!!

Thank you Jim for a very special day!!!!!

My heart is full of gratitude:  for all the sweet friends who wished

me well today, for my generally good health, for being 

able to do what I dearly love, and for the sweet

and gentle man next to me.  Today I

breathe deeply and exhale.
