Yes folks, I am another year old and I suppose another year wiser. Most people don't like birthdays once they get out of the teen years and though I'm not that much older than those "teen years" I still love having birthdays. It reminds me that I am blessed to be alive and to have experienced as much as I have, as well as a great excuse to eat cake! In honor of this lovely occasion, I am allowing myself to purchase a couple of books I've wanted and to eat as much birthday cake as my tummy will allow! I received a B&N gift card from my lovely friend Victoria and will probably have that spent by this evening....and I also may just par down my wishlist on Christianbook.com and buy a couple there as well. My fabulous fiance gave me a beautiful cross necklace as a gift...I've been searching for the "right" one for months and he finally found one! And my mother sent me an awesome polka dot dress to wear on my honeymoon...black, white, and lime green!! It's been a great birthday and I thank God to have blessed me with another year! I'll let you all know what I purchase as far as books go!
