happy birthday to me! :-)

today is my very favorite day of year!
have always loved my birthday. a few years ago i got a book that describes me to a tee!
the book is called "Happy to You! It's your birthday!" by Mary Engelbreit.
here are some of my favorite quotes from the book!:
"I have occasionally been accused of treating my birthday as a national holiday. I confess to being guilty as charged!"

"If you woke up today and the sun seemed to be shining a little brighter, the birds seemed to be chirping a little more cheerfully, and everyone seemed to be treating you especially nice, it can only mean one thing... It's your birthday!"

"When it's my day to be Birthday Queen, my first official decree is always to extend the duration of my birthday to an entire week!"

"Some people consider their birthday a solemn occasion- a time to reflect on the past year in solitude and quiet contemplation. To that, I say "Phooey!" "

"I truly believe that there should be nothing ordinary about one's birthday -even for adults. On ever other day of the year, we are defined by what we do and the roles we play... but on our birthdays, we are more... we are royalty! It's a short reign, so when it's your turn on the throne, make it count!"

"Rise and shine and prepare for the royal treatment because today is all about you!"

"...My best advice on having a happy birthday is to spread the fun around. Invite all your friends to join in, but accept your place in the spotlight. Revel in it! Tomorrow it will be someone else's chance, so enjoy your moment of glory."

i couldn't have said any of these wise words better myself! here are just a few more random quotes about birthdays!

"One cannot have too large a party." -Jane Austin

"A gift is pure when it is given from the heart to the right person at the right time and at the right place, and when we expect nothing in return." -Bhagavad Gita

"Make your birthday a one-of-a-kind event." -Wendy Webb

what a day!

thanks to you all for all of your birthday messages and wishes!

Happy Birthday my friend! You just sparkle. I wish I spent more than a weekend a year with you. You have a contagious smile and laugh. I want to be like you when I grow up. I will always remember that first year at Expo when I met you.
