Happy Birthday to Me


I don't normally do this on the blog, but today, November 29th, is my birthday! I say it because I wanted to post the image above, sent to me via email by my great friend from high school, Nannette. An orchid on top of a cupcake. Nannette is a faithful blog reader, and knows that cupcakes plus flowers are a favorite of mine:

Thanks Nannette, that picture made me smile. Nannette and I were great friends in high school, and went to...wait for it...the senior prom together! Nannette in high school: cool, creative, pretty, brave. I was lucky we were friends. She said yes to the prom when I asked her and we had a blast. When she mailed the image above, she also remembered the orchid wrist corsage I got her for the prom. I have to say, that orchid wrist corsage was good. We're going back in time here like thirty-five years. To cupcakes and flowers I add old friends to life's great joys.
