Happy Birthday Joanne,

I am sure you are in bed by now since you are an hour later than here in Oregon...may this year bring you unanticipated overflowing!




Happy Birthday!! Hope it was a great day!


Well, since it's the 16th here, Happy Belated Birthday, Joanne! Hope you liked the e-card! (:

And nope, am not a March 15th person. I'm a March 1st! (:


Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you.


Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you had a great day yesterday.

How fun to share a birthday with two friends. That's pretty special!


Happy birthday to you! I'm glad you had a lovely day. Funny about the age thing! I'm turning 24 this year and I still think I am like 22! I think it comes with being in your 20s. You just can't imagine that you're actually getting older. Not a kid any more!

Also wanted to say happy anniversary. I haven't been reading for that long but I wanted you to know how much your blog means to me. Your faith really is an inspiration to me. Your journal entry in the next post is just beautiful.


Beth Whitney

Happy Birthday! (late!)

I am a March girl, too. 35 this year. Seems! ;)


happy birthday. i'm so glad that even though you're not in cal anymore, we can stay in touch.
