Well, friends, today is my birthday. Funny how, as we mature, we don’t seem to count the days (like we did when we were kids) until we are officially another year older.

Motor Man and I have an adventure planned today; I will share details soon.

He surprised me yesterday with a beach-themed birthday cake. He said he tried to find a horse to add to it, but couldn’t.

Today, I’m also wishing my “birthday twin” a special day. If you missed the post about the two of us sharing a birthday, you can read about it here. Happy Birthday, Marilyn!

In order to ease the pain of adding another year, I’m planning to s-t-r-e-t-c-h out this birthday celebration: dinner with Motor Man and Marshall tonight, then lunches tomorrow and the next day with special friends.

  5. Happy Birthday! Love the flip flops.
    PS I saw recently where a 15 yr-old entrepreneur has already sold her line of “fish flops” to major department stores. Google “fish flops.” I think they are just your style.
