Thank you all SO much for all the Birthday wishes, kind words and your memories of birthdays past. I love hearing people's stories, I think we've lost that tradition of story telling as a whole in our society but that's a whole different post isn't it? :)

I received a wonderful present from my friend Milda in Chicago for my birthday. It came from the French Quarter Market a lovely box with a Fleur De Lis on it and since I am all about the Fleur De Lys I LOVED it! I recently had to rename my faux business because of legal reasons and I chose Faux De Lys, so the box fit in with me theme.

SO I used the box to put the names in for my little give away. Hubby did the picking for that isn't my hairy hand! He chose DENA from SWADDLE COTTAGE!! Dena please email me your address and I will get the package out to you as soon as I can.

Thank you again everyone for all your Birthday wishes and for stopping by and helping to make this birthday such a wonderful one. Next year is the big 4-0 and I hope it is as great as this year's! :)

I will get a chance to respond to everyone's lovely comments soon.

Oh my gosh that's my name in those fingers!! Oh am I jumping up and down over here (My husband just hollered down the hall..."What's going on? Whose fingers? What's the matter?" So I yell back..."I won a prezzie!" He's totally confused at how I did that from the living room with fingers. Little does he know I have dear friends in this electronic box! You are such a sweetie Michelle! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Hi Michelle,

I seem to be having a problem with my email, it keeps kicking back for some reason. I think it went through but let me know if it didn't work.
