Well, it's official. I'm 40-something. I had a wonderful birthday on Monday. I woke up to the family tradition of doughnuts, placed on the counter by Bill who had left for work long before the rest of us woke up. Like the candles? I do.

A little birdie must have told Bill exactly what I wanted for my birthday. I want to build my collection of Byer's Choice Carolers. Wouldn't you know they have Wegman's themed ones?? I just had to have it.

My brother Jim called me with the best comment ever. He said, "Happy Birthday. I'm glad you were born."

Isn't that the best??  I think that must be the nicest thing you can say to someone.


  1. Happy Birthday, Kathleen! Love the number 29...not that I've seen it any time lately ;)

  2. Hope you had a wonderful day!! I agree with your brother, I am also glad you were born.. where would I be without you !! XOXOXOXOXO

  3. Happy Birthday! What a lousy friend I am that I didn't realize it was your birthday until now!

  4. How sweet!!!! You have a wonderful family!!! We will toast with coffee soon.... Kim

  5. Shame on me for missing your birthday...hope you had a great day. Love the doughnut tradition. It's those little things that I think we all look forward to the most in life...little reminders of how much we're loved. Keri
