Day 264 of this year....




You're probably wondering what this all means. What are all these numbers, and why road signs? Am I going on a trip....no. But 68 years ago in Illinois I landed on this planet! And now 68 years later I live in California. Yep, it's my birthday and I'm 68 years young.

If you're too young to remember 1943 (and most of you are!) then you can read about it here ....mostly it's all about WWII 'cause we were right in the midst of it when I was born. In fact, my dad was serving in the navy at the time and was not around for the big event. We didn't meet until I was about 2 years old.


This is not my cake. I found this image on Google and it's perfect....except maybe for the color. I would prefer the flowers and lettering be in shades of purple!

Okay, now I'm off to celebrate in the best way possible. I'm going to make some art!

PS - Happy Birthday, Eden!!!!

  14. Happy birthday! I hope you enjoy your celebration. I was moved by your comment about your dad not meeting you until you were two because he was in the navy. Do you have any memories of being without him, or was that much too young?
