Happy Birthday to Me!

There are people who love their birthday and others who don't really care. I am one of those who love their birthday.  This year I am meeting a bunch of friends for happy hour.  I am excited to see friends and celebrate.  This is kind of a big birthday but yikes...we don't have to talk numbers lol.

I thought I would re post one of my favorite birthday posts from a few years ago...

Several years ago when BFF Cynthia was a reporter in West Palm Beach, she got herself invited to dinner with Lilly Pulitzer and a few friends. The dinner took place in February and Cynthia happened to have a birthday card in her purse that she was planning on sending to me. She told Lilly that she had a friend who LOVED Lilly Pulitzer and always talked about having Lilly bridesmaids dresses in her wedding...she asked Lilly to sign my card and she told Cynthia to leave it with her and she would send it off herself...



You cannot imagine the shock of opening this card, which Lilly had written to me and even added a little fabric swatch at the bottom! What a terrific surprise!! I have treasured this memento for a long time and had it tucked away somewhere safe..only I hid it too well and couldn't remember where! Luckily, I found it this week just in time to share with all my Lilly loving friends.

So today is my birthday and while I am not expecting another Lilly birthday card, I do have very fun plans in the works and can't wait to see all my friends!
 So, I will thank Cynthia again for thinking of me and Lilly for sending me quite possibly the best birthday card ever!!!!

Did all the bridesmaids talk jinx me?
Still single on my birthday,
xoxo, kp
