Discoveries, Surprises & Celebrations!

It's a special week for me, as I will be
celebrating my birthday.

I'm looking forward to spending my days
seeing friends, enjoying their company,
sharing laughs and good food, hearing
from other long distance friends and
family, commemorating the occasion
with a few surprises tucked into the
moments... here and there.

I have asked my sweet husband to take
me on a sort-of progressive dinner
Thursday night, which is my actual day
of birth. We plan to dine at one of my
favorite restaurants, topping the meal
off by having a decadent dessert some
place different.

And what a FUN way to start this birthday
celebration week, by seeing a sneak
peak of my art
for an upcoming article
in this incredible magazine.With the
added bonus of finding a few unique
little treasures today in my favorite
antique store, like the most intricate
small needlework landscape I have
ever seen and a beautifully illustrated
flower book...
with a handwritten message to the original
recipient on the inside cover, making this
petite manuscript even more endearing.

My birthday is Thursday too! I'm going to a Tapas restaurant the night before, having the Chef's menu, so also sort of progressive. (as in don't know what is coming next) Enjoy your birthday week!

Lorna... THANK YOU so much for stopping by to visit my humble blog.

Unfortunately, blogger does not always give me the email address of some one leaving a comment, so I apologize that I had to respond to your sweet message in this fashion.

I think it is VERY COOL that we share the same birthday... and what a GREAT DAY it is! I will be thinking of you on the 16th!

Have a GREAT meal at the Tapas restaurant.. and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

warmly,
Tracie
