Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.....

From the time we were very little my parents, (like most parent) made us feel even more special on this day.  This was the day we were given a so called "get out of jail free" card.  We were allowed to do just about anything we wanted (within limits of course), and best of all we did not have to do a single chore.

I love  birthdays.  We got dressed up,  our favorite food was made and we even had some pretty cool presents.  Growing up then was a lot different.  One present was what we got and we were HAPPY!

Today as a grown woman, I still enjoy the excitement of knowing it's my birthday. My expectations have changed.  What I look forward the most to is that card written from Arvid.  Just this and my day is complete.  Yes, I love the presents also, but I would give those up and still be happy with my special card.  

I always love to indulge

We have had a great weekend/day.  We started our celebration on Friday and did what we do best, have a great time, go to some very cool places, have delicious meals and just relax in each others company.

I'm always happy with Arvid

If today is your birthday, have a wonderful day.  You deserve it!

The best of times are those we spend together...just the three of us... 
 May you live to be 100 and may the last voice you hear be mine....
