Birthday Babycham

- Thankful thursday

At the beginning of the month I turned a grand old 24 years old. I'm sure I should start investigating anti wrinkle creams. Jokes (can't decide if I'm joking or not) aside, I didn't know what to expect from my birthday at all, I didn't exactly have any plans right up until a few days before, which I must admit, made it look like a bleak prospect. It was made worse by people I know asking what plans I had and made me feel a fool when I answered the truth of, "nothing", - actually the only plan I had were to eat an intire box of macaroons. In the end it turned out to be one long weekend of celebrations. A three day birthday, that's one more day than the Queen! I won't bore you with all the details, but I saw close friends Friday and Saturday and then family on Sunday. That's a crazy amount of activity for me, I'm so thankful that my chronic illness gave me a break as it were and didn't effect me too much more than it normally does. I feel so touched by the generosity of those around me. I received so many presents, and was so touched by the effort my friends and family put in. I even found energy to work with my mum on a babycham birthday cake. It was pretty easy to do and didn't take much time especially with my mum doing all the hard work, I was just bossy and incharge of decoration. The result was amazing - even if I do say so myself! I love deers, and have had a little obsession with the babycham deer since my early teens.
Since all the celebrations I've been very quiet, taking it easy, but I think it was all worth it. I never did get that box of birthday macaroons though, that's a gift I still owe myself.

  1. I'm glad you had a great birthday weekend and your cake is SO cute. It's so much better than any cake I ever made haha Happy late birthday :)


  2. That cake is incredible! So pleased to hear you had a lovely birthday weekend :)

  3. Sweetheart, puh-leeze don't try to 'fit-in' withe passing world - they'll use you to abuse you; try to fit-in withe eternal-God-in-Heaven who made YOU and loves YOU with a passion - precisely what I'm trying to do because this earth is only a testing ground, then eternity, either Up -or- down according to OUR free-will-choices. Looky here…

    Precisely why I had our ‘philanthropic + epiphany’ (= so much to give + vision): wanna see a perfectly cognizant, fully-spectacular, Son-ripened-Heaven?? … yet, I’m not sure if we're on the same page if you saw what I saw. Greetings, earthling. Because I was an actual NDE on the outskirts of the Great Beyond at 15 yet wasn’t allowed in, lemme share with you what I actually know Seventh-Heaven’s Big-Bang’s gonna be like: meet this advanced, bombastic, ex-mortal Upstairs for the most extra-groovy-paradox, pleasure-beyond-measure, Ultra-Yummy-Reality-Addiction in the Great Beyond for a BIG-ol, kick-ass, party-hardy, robust-N-risqué, eternal-wild-adventure you DO NOT wanna miss the sink-your-teeth-in-the-smmmokin’-hot-deal. Cya soon, girl…

    PS And, yes, I’ll pray everyday for you because I love you.
