Who will ever forget May 12, 2008………..certainly not me. I woke up last year to my 50th birthday and the horrendous news that the place I had just visited 2 months prior…….Sichuan, China was devistated by an earthquake. People and pandas displaced, killed and injured. This day was a pivotal moment in my life for many reasons. YOu can hear the podcast below to find out more.
Well today….my 51st birthday is more the way I like to spend my special day (actually I think of ALL of May as “my” month….I just love May!!) I havent’ changed much over the years as you can see in the awesome photos my mom has been restoring of the family. I have always adored flowers , pretty packages and animals from the day I was born
Here I am on my FIRST birthday ….mom I don’t ever remember seeing these pix before…what a treat
And how in heavens name did we ever survive our childhoods I sometimes wonder? LOL! This car seat below mom says only had a strap around the waist the size of a dog collar and just hooked over the FRONT seat with no tie downs. What a blast from the past!
Below…more flowers! My mom made pretty much all my clothes and I was always wearing a hat of some sort…hmmmmmm …..maybe thats where I got my hat fetish from???
I”m not sure if the mama kitty was “Billie” or “Sammy” but these kittens are soooooo adorable . We had Siamese cats for years until we moved back to Minnesota in the 70’s
Below….so for now I will sign off cuz I’m “GONE FISHIN” , taking down my shingle for the day and heading outside to celebrate my birthday with Ma Nature in the garden. It’s 50, a bit chilly ..but the sun is out AND ITS MY BIRTHDAY!!! Wooooo Hooooo!!!
