It's a BIG one.

I'm not sure how this happened
but once again I have faced another birthday
and it's a BIG one.

I walk around shaking my head a lot but promise to embrace it with all the gumption I can muster. 

And I'm thankful.
Thankful for all that I have been blessed with;
especially all the dynamic, loving & high-spirited people that make up my family.

 I love them all.

And I am thankful for a big slice of cake anytime. That goes without saying.

So here's to me...
                                    All you need is 'LOVE'


Tra-la-la.                 "She's HOW old?"

"It's enough to make a gal stay in bed all day."

hugs, Deb


  1. HaHa! Audrey!x Has it sussed...! :).
    Bless! Her!x

    Well...A very happy 'BIG' one is in order
    then...And, l see a decent sized wine glass
    to drink from as well...! :).

    I have my daughter and hubby down for weekend,
    and it's Fathers Day on Sunday! So, we'll be
    out and about, spending money...'MY' money! :).

    Best wishes ALL round then...and a 'little' wave
    and a 'little' kiss for Simon...the 'little' hero! :0).

  2. It's not how old, it's how much lived! Happy Birthday, Deb and numbers mean nothing...repeat until you believe...numbers mean nothing! Enjoy your family weekend, and rub that Audrey belly for me!

  3. Joyous and happy returns to you!!! I turned 70 this year so now they are ALL big ones!!!

  4. Happy Birthday to you! Looks like you had a fun celebration!

  5. Happy Birthday! Isn't it amazing how fast time travels? And here we are, still 25 in our minds... :)

  6. Well, happy happy happy happiest of birthdays! Who cares how big that birthday is? I love the LOVE heart! Audrey! You're kissable!

  7. Oh Deb! Happy Birthday!!!! Don't pay any attention to Audrey. I don't believe a word she says. :) I love that big country looking heart. That will be so pretty at the mouse house. Hope this whole day is as special as you are!

  8. Since it's a big one, I'm guessing it ends in zero. Unless it ends in five. And I know it doesn't have a 7 in front of it because you could tell! So, I'd say, voice of experience, that you will survive in all beautiful glory because you life is filled with people and furballs and flight fellows and chippers that make your heart sing. And you, in turn, make ours sing with all the joy you share.

    A big, huge happy birthday wish to you, my friend. May it just be the first year of dozens to follow!

  9. Happy, Happy Big Birthday Deb. I hope you had a most wonderful day. I adore that Love Heart you are holding, it is beautiful. Speaking of beautiful ...... that pic of dear Audrey is just gorgeous. xxx

  10. Happy Birthday. Audrey is saying "from this vantage point,
    you don't look a day over 29" Love that picture of Audrey.
    Our family has a stuffed (fiber fill) buzzard that begins taking roost when one turns 30- it takes flight every time someone has a 5 or 0 at the end of their birthday number.
    Do the math- I got it this year and I've had it 9 times!
    It is a fun tradition. It hangs over the chair or bed of the respective birthday celebrant. Hugs to all your furry and feathered babies and critters.

  11. Wishing you a lovely birthday Deb, it looks like you're celebrating BIG time :)
    Pretty heart, I'm sure you've already picked a spot to display.

  12. Happy Birthday to you!
    Enjoy =)
    The gift is lovely.
