It Was My Birthday!

Hello my dear friends,

this past Saturday was my birthday. I am not going to say how old I turned but I would like to show and tell you how my day was ... it was lovely!!!  I received many lovely phone calls from relatives near and far from across the ocean too and everybody sang to me!! It was just so nice!!

When I came home after my morning outing this is what was awaiting me...

My two lovely daughters baked me another one of their beautiful cakes!!

I love the way it looks!!

It was decorated so lovely and the color of it, inside and out was amazing ...

... and the taste ...

... so good ~ I had two slices of it!! It was so yummy!!

My older daughter Ashleigh even had birthday wishes painted onto her nails!

And my gifts were just wonderful!

My two daughters got me these ...!

... new licence plates for my car!
Now everybody will know about Todolwen!!
It even says 'yours to discover' ~ so true!

My younger daughter Caylagh gifted me with these amazing journals to keep my ideas in.

And my hubby gifted me with a new camera!!
 Oh my, now I can take even better pictures for Todolwen!

And ... I received a giftcard for Michaels ... can't wait to spend it!

And last but not least ... lovely cards that touched my heart and made me laugh.

I must say ... what a lovely day!!
It ended with us going out for a nice dinner and after that sitting together on the couch watching a good movie. All in all ... my day was perfect!

For any of you lovely bloggers that have had their birthday this year already ... a belated Happy Birthday to you and for all those of you that still  have a birthday coming ... Happy Birthday to You!
~ please imagine my singing this to you:) ~

I hope to see you back here at Todolwen very soon ~ rememeber it's 'yours to discover'!

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
