It is My Birthday!





















Today is my birthday. No combination gifts allowed...lol. So, it's been quite a few weeks, first my husband had his birthday on the 15th, Holiday shows to prepare for, Edward coming home for Winter break from college, 3 straight days of snow, Chanukah, Christmas, and now THIS...oh, I'm exhausted!!! We plan to go to the Federal Hill section of Providence, where we go to a store called Venda. To those of you familiar with Balducci's in NYC., it's similar, very similar. We're going to buy all sorts of prepared Italian foods (cooking, today, NO WAY!), come home and have a lovely early dinner and begin to unwind. We're grateful, so very grateful for a blessed Chanukah and Christmas, a warm home, food in the fridg, clothes to wear, our health, beloved family and friends. Now, we rest.

Happy Birthday Amy :-)

I was so touched when I received your beautiful Christmas card this week. Thank you so much, it was so incredibly thoughtful of you. I have had your blog open in a tab all day, waiting for me to sit down and have a good read - so wasn't I surprised to find you in my ecard ad queue when I finally sat down tonight!

I'll be in touch when things slow down next year lol.

blessings,
Christy

Hi Amy,

A very Happy Birthday to you. Birthday's become more significant when you see what you have achieved in life through the outcome of your efforts - the best of these is having raised children who will be responsible and respectable members of society which they may help re-shape to become better.

I'm so happy to have known you and have always admired your craft, art, and your humanity. The greeting is late, but it is better than much later - besides, it will never diminish my regard for you. And I will always look forward to your posts and your take on life and events. Happy Birthday! :-) --Durano, done!

Rebecca said...

Amy Lilley Designs said...

Brad, thank you for your ever thoughtful comment. Yes, I can measure my days thru my son, my diabetic son, who is taking excellent care of himself while away from home, and doing well in college. A good kid all around who wants very much to leave his mark in the world. The birthday wishes are never too late and the mutual respect is greatly appreciated. Blessings...

Rebecca..OMG, I feel almost human today!!! Thank you for your good wishes..a healthy New Year to you and your family!!

Nicole, thank you and have a good vacation!!! Happy New Year!
