2 November 1957 “Happy Birthday to Me”

birthdaywoman Today is my birthday. Though we are not celebrating it officially today, as we have a party planned this Friday, I was surprised with this at Breakfast.

birthday1 I had set the table as usual for Hubby and I to have breakfast and when I came back in, there it was. It is just a simple little gift, as my presents shall be this Friday, but he didn’t want my actual birthday to not involve a gift.

birthday2I love that he even made the little box out of paper himself. As you can see he used one of my favorite colors, as it matches my dishes. It contained two darling little vintage pins. He purchased them from our local shop where I often go to get antique/vintage finds. The ladies who run it love him. Every time I shop there, one of the ladies always says to the others she is working with, “She has the best husband” (referring to me) “He came in last Christmas and just bought the most wonderful things. He just walked right up and new what to get”. So, I am sure they were happy when he walked in the door.

What I cannot fathom is that here we are at another birthday already! As my birthday is at the end of the year, when it arrives I often wonder, ‘Where has the year gone’? This year it seems to have arrived even sooner. I cannot believe that this is my Third birthday in the 1950’s! How has it been three years (well in January it will be) since I started my project?

When I think back to my ‘before 50’s life’ it seems ages ago. Almost as far away as the actual 1950’s and I wasn’t even there. Though the time has speed by I am so happy and grateful to have had these past years with all of you. I have made so many wonderful friends in our virtual community. I am honored and happy that so many of you have come along with me this far on my crazy ride. Though my 1950’s or really ‘old timey’ parts of my life seem completely normal now, they are everyday improved or brightened by my sharing them with all of you. I thank you all for your support and interest and friendship. I am truly blessed and surely happy on this birthday. Thank you all.

Happy Homemaking and Happy Birthday to me!
