Wow, I'm 47 today!

Pin It Now!

Today is my birthday and I cannot believe I'm 47! Please don't say I look good for 47 because the picture on my profile is from my 25 year High School Reunion and it's 4 years old already. I haven't taken a decent picture since then!

The great news about being on the very front page of HGTV yesterday was the best birthday gift ever. I woke up this morning to see if it was still there and it was gone ~ oh well, at least I saw it and I got a screen shot of it and I will never forget how great that felt. Thank you all for the nice comments!

Happy Birthday! I hope it is wonderful.

You share your birthday with a very special young man ... my little boy. I just finished writing a post about his big bash, and stopped by to see your blog. What a nice surprise!

Happy birthday! I turned 47 on September 7. I don't feel any different, do you? Our 50th may be another story/blog!

Congrats on the HGTV Rate my Space page. I tried posting some of my photos and I had a bad experience so I removed my photos. Some mean person had some awful words to criticize my decorating style! I got the "creeps" from this person. Maybe I will try again. What has been your experience? Any "wacko" comments, yet? Let me know. Maybe you can restore my faith in humanity! Cindy

Happy Birthday Cindy. I hope that this year will be the best year you have ever had. I hope that this year, the joy of being featured by HGTV will be overshawdowed by even greater things!

Shari said...

Although I already sent wishes earlier via email, there's no harm in repeating myself here: Happy, happy birthday!

Oh my, I sure wouldn't mind being 47 again. (Insert wistful sigh here.) Actually ages 45 to 50 were some of THE BEST years of my life! As the song goes... "Old enough to know better but still too young to care"! (chuckle)

Hope you are doing something really special to celebrate YOU. Here's to MANY more!

Happy Birthday!

As someone who has just passed 50, I find myself looking in the mirror and seeing my (much) older sister looking back! :)

May you be blessed as you bless your readers.
