Y'all, this has just been the greatest week ever, and we're only at the halfway point!!! If I haven't personally thanked you yet in the comment section, let me take this moment to let everyone know how much I have appreciated all the birthday wishes and comments. :o) Yesterday was indeed a wonderful birthday, and from now on, I'm convinced that I will forever be "29." My new boss took me out for a wonderful lunch today, and my husband and I spent the evening with my family at one of my favorite Italian restaurants. And even better...I actually did get to eat a *real* slice of coconut cake. :o)
But now, time for today's special guest--Ginger Garrett!!
Texas! My birth place and favorite place on earth. I'd visit the Alamo and say hello to the picture of James Garrett, a martyr who died there. We claim him as part of our family, but I don't know how certain that is.
My husband has been to Texas a couple of times, and the farthest I've ever been inside the state is Texarkana (doesn't really count, in my opinion). :o( I really would like to actually visit someday!
Do you have any special memories of the year you turned 30?
I had been told I would never have children, and had lost a pregnancy after a car accident. I was heartsick beyond repair. But my husband invited all my friends and family over for a birthday party, and I looked around the room, seeing all these smiling faces. It healed me. I was loved. And for that night, it was enough.
Sounds like you have a keeper of a hubby. :o)
If you could only give one book to me for my birthday (not including your own), what book would I find underneath the wrapping paper?
Beowolf in hard cover. I named my beloved Bearded Collie after Grendel, so it's a story I will always cherish. Nothing ever made me giggle more than waiting in the vet's office, and having a technician call out, "Grendel's mother? Come this way please..." If you know the story, you know that she was the most horrid, ugliest monster in all the world!
And the most important question of all. What's your favorite flavor of birthday cake? :o)
Oooo, that's one of my favorites! I could eat the icing alone by the spoonful!
Well, I hope all of y'all grabbed your slice of German Chocolate cake today! I know I did! And while you eat it, take a look at today's present--a copy of Ginger's latest book, Desired. :o)
