Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my 41st birthday! Hurray! I guess most people don't get excited about birthdays after a while, but I still do. I'm not ashamed to say I'm 41 cause I think it's pretty darn great (and WAY better than the alternative!). Any day you are encouraged to eat cake is worth celebrating!

My sister, Marge, (the same one I mentioned earlier who CONSTANTLY teased me at the grocery store over Little Debbie Cupcakes) is an amazing artist. She can paint beautiful portraits and also make crazy little linoleum-cut critters. I don't know how she does it. I asked her to "make me some art" for my office as my birthday present, and here is the print she sent me. Marge says he is the old moon man who is angry with the sun for waking him up. He would have been perfect for the IF tails & legends theme this week! I love the colors and think he's pretty funny. Reminds me of myself when someone wakes me up too early - minus the goatee, thank you very much.

Now, ya'll go have a big ol' slab of cake to help me celebrate my 41 years! mmmmm, cake!
