Another year older

Yep, I'm turning another year older today.  So far it's been a great birthday morning, with my husband and my girls spoiling me rotten.  They gave me quite a chuckle by waking me up all wearing Groucho Marx style fake glasses, noses and mustaches.  I'm so grateful for my wonderful and wacky family!

As I'm getting older, my birthday becomes less significant to me and I really like to keep the celebration low key.   Though I do milk my "my birthday week" (yes, birthday WEEK!) for all it's worth, and I get my hubby to do all sorts of nice things around the house.   He even -- *gasp* -- cleaned out the litter box last night and again this morning!  

I'm going out for a nice lunch and dinner later, then after dinner I get to have birthday cake from my very favorite bakery: Hansen's Cakes (seriously the BEST cake place in Los Angeles).  Yummo! Here's a birthday layout I made a few years ago.  The girls always help me blow out the candles on my cake.

Thank you for allowing me this somewhat self-indulgent post!

Hi Stacy!
I love this layout! I'm writing a blogpost for a new website about using crochet flowers in scrapbook layout and I would love to use your layout as an example. Would you please give permission to me to use your photos? You will, of course, get full credit and I will link to your website.
Looking forward to hear from you!
