I’m 29 today!

Wow! I’m 29 yrs old today, well… yesterday (late blog post).  Like my hubby says, I’m “knockin’ on 30.”  It feels weird but in a good way. I’m very happy with where I am in my life. Loving husband, awesome kiddos, organic farm, doing something I love … Yea, my life is GREAT!

I tried to take a break from the computer today but I just couldn’t.  I was overwhelmed by the email notifications of the hundreds of messages and posts I received from friends, family and followers. WOW! Thank you so much for all the love and support. I really appreciate it.

My mother and youngest sister came to visit and brought some yummy food and gifts for the kids. I cooked a light dinner and for dessert we had a yummy (store-bought) carrot cake.

As far as birthday celebrations go we like to keep it low-key around here and have some good ‘ol family fun!  My son had me cracking up all day today especially with the birthday song he wrote for me.  He grabbed his little guitar and rocked out! 

Now, that it’s already after midnight and it’s technically not my birthday anymore I’m off to work on a longarming tutorial in my new (but not totally finished) studio. 

Don’t judge. This is a one woman production over here. Something’s got to give. 
Have a great weekend!

    Happy Birthday! I pray you have many many more! May God continue to bless you and keep you as sweet as you are always.
    I’ve watched so many of your little videos that I feel as though I know you personally.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I just finished the little make-up bag. Still had trouble with that darn zipper (I made your wristlet too)…it was better, but not perfect (there was a gap at the end of the zipper – I just zig-zaged over it). Have a wonderful day!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU… from another Gemini who shares this birth-date with you! You just have to add another 32 years to age and we could be sisters.

    Happy Quilting
