The BIG 3-8!!

Today is the day... my birthday!!
I hope you'll all put on your party hats and celebrate with me!

There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get
un-birthday presents ... and only one for birthday presents, you know.
~ Lewis Carroll

A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip.

I still have a full deck; I just shuffle slower now. ~Author Unknown

The secret of staying young is to live honestly,
eat slowly, and lie about your age.
~Lucille Ball

And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count.
It's the life in your years.
~Abraham Lincoln

Thanks for joinin' the party!!
