Very, very excited about all of the sampler enthusiasm — thank you so much! I am thrilled. We will talk!

It's my birthday tomorrow, so I made myself a wee little birthday cake. And took a big huge picture of it. :-)


That's a cool photo -- and happy birthday to you!

Happy Birthday Alicia!! Enjoy your cake and your day!!

Happiest of Birthdays Alicia.....

Happy Birthday! It's a lovely lovely cake for a lovely lovely person. (Kisses to Clover Meadow...presumptuous, I know, since I don't know her, but she's a short-legged twin of my own Tallulah Mae!)

Happy Birthday Alicia! May you have the perfect day with your wonderful family and friends.

Oh, I so need to take a page out of your book for my next birthday. I have a tendency to grumble that nobody bakes me a cake, but how much better would it be for everyone (myself included) if I just cheerfully made one myself!

A very happy birthday to you!

Happy birthday! May it be the best one yet and may this year bring much joy and happiness!
