Its My Birthday: And Today Proved to be Quite Nice Indeed

on 5 May, 2015

So, I woke up this morning to find this on the kitchen island:

Of course, he left it to me to frost it, but to his credit, he actually made the trip in the middle of the night to the store to buy both the cake mix and the frosting. I cannot begin to tell you how much I love that Kid.

And here it is after I frosted it:

Oh, and lets not forget a day filled with about a thousand birthday wishes! When you have great friends, it more than makes up for the less-than-perfect family. Thank you! I love you all so dearly!

Today, in case some of you missed it, was a very special birthday. I turned five five (55) on five five (May 5). This milestone was pointed out to me on my first milestone birthday, turning 5 on 5/5. And let me assure you, at the ripe old age of five, I could not even fathom fifty years down the road. That would have made me ancient!

So, once again, a great big heartfelt thank you to everyone who reached out. Now I am going to put my feet up and me and The Kid are going to split the leaf (the “leaf” of the cake, not that leaf… HA!).
