Happy Birthday to Me


Well Readers... I have one confession to make... and it is no secret, I am an absolute DIVA about my birthday... {so shameless}. I freaking LOVE marking a day on a calendar that I get to call my own.

And in case you didn't see the billboards I put up on I95 or you missed the radio ads announcing my big day... Yesterday, July 24th was my birthday! {Heck yes}

And Oh was it a Birthday! I started my day with a love note (favorite part) which was followed by a trip to the local coffee shop for coffee and my first gift...



Drum roll Please....ba da dum .... A gift certificate to ... the Artist and Craftsman Supply Company in Baltimore... So from coffee we went shopping together {a miraculous event}! And I got to recklessly spend my gift card on treats that I wouldn't ever buy for myself...{bonus}


After leaving with my arms full of my treasures, we had some time to waste so we wandered the isles of my favorite book store {can't get enough of that}...
But, Shortly after our book store arrival I was whisked away for another surprise ... 

But before I could figure out where we were going, I was given my next gift and one requirement... I must wear it...


and so I entered the BALTIMORE MUSEUM OF ART in my Beautiful NEW Hat... {I have a thing for hats, don't ask (just love)} where I did some thinking...


I saw Picasso and his Blues {beautiful} and my favorite Giacometti...!
After the BMA we headed to the most fabulous place on Earth... 
The: Paper Moon Diner


Where barbies, trolls and GI Joes are glueed to the ceiling, Cupie dolls come in abundance and food comes in MASSIVE proportions...!



Stuffed to the gills we slowly removed ourselves from our booth and made our way back en-route to our last birthday surprise... Destination Unknown...
I received my third gift in the car... Some beautiful rose bud earrings...{love!}


 I put them on, Immediately...! And off we were to...

the streets of Washington DC...
... Dave kept this mission a secret all the way up to the front door.


I walk though the door and up the steps and see art work on the wall and low and behold...


He has put my work in a gallery in DC... {Best BF ever}
So sweet and absolutely fantastic... I kissed him all over his face giggled a little as he told me how he managed to get my prints and his stories of struggles and triumphs... and smiled all day long...

Than back to Ellicott City where we had Dinner with my Family...
Mom made a fabulous watermelon cooler... {frozen watermelon in a blender, add sugar, strain. Mix with club soda, pour over ice add mint and welcome to heaven} 


We chowed down on a 4 star meal and ended the evening with our traditional birthday cake!




Happy Birthday to Me... It could not have been better... Thank you Everyone... I love you

Your very own gallery exhibition! I am so happy that your birthday was so wonderful. You deserve it! I have a feeling that we will see many more displays of your art in the future. I'm a big fan of your work.
