Celebration: Feliz Cumpleanos a Mi

Took a trip down memory lane this morning and uncovered a plethora of saved birthday cards from my childhood...

Probably my 13th birthday or so...I was so excited to get one of my first albums. The Eagles. You'll note my mom in the background: my teen years were probably not the easiest. For anyone. Love you mom!

Found you thru RSG and wanted to say happy birthday.

Um, I think she might have been insinuating that you are not 29. Tell me it ain't so.....

Happy Birthday!

I am about 95% certain I got that fluffy kitten card once. It is frightening.

Also, the '70s certainly were the decade of the polka-dot toadstool, weren't they?

I hope you had a fab birthday and enjoyed some really decadent chocolatey cake!

Happy Birthday! May NoPo be free of beatings and stabbing in honor of this special day.

I am a bit jealous though. I've only had two birthday parties in my entire life, and I ended up paying for one of them.

bemused said...

Happy Birthday, lelo!!

Better late than never, right? Or as a birthday card once said "better Nate than lever." If I can ever remember the rest of the card and not just the punch line I'll be sure to share it.
