hello world.

Tis' my birthday friends!
In its honor, I have removed all
calories from cake for today only.
You're welcome.

I have so much to be grateful for as I celebrate my life, its crazy.
A home, my own home, that I get to fill with pleasing things.
A bed, comfortable, to sleep my troubles away on.
A job with the best bosses on the planet.
Clean, healthy food that I can afford.
Running water that heats and cools as necessary (magical).
Family and friends who love and support me and let me be a part of their amazing lives.
And a dope to the max husband who is the shizzle to muh nizzle.
I know that what the Lord giveth He can taketh away
so I try to cherish these things everyday I'm blessed to have them.

Thanks to those of you who have formed a circle of blog friends and included me.
I love reading your stories, looking at your pretty pics and being inspired by your words.
I look forward to meeting new people everyday through this bloggy medium.
Thanks for making my life cheery!

Now I am off for a weekend vacation
so I will see you in a few days
& remember to enter the giveaway
and spread it around like wildfire!

ps- check out this purdy background for my birth month!
