Oh my goodness.... my last year in the thirties! We celebrated the day I was born yesterday. I ate yummy food, played Mille Bornes, found out that my husband ordered me an ethnicity DNA kit, and overall had an awesome day! Oh yes, I said DNA kit. I often pride myself on my 50/50 ethnicity. First generation American on my Dad's Italian side and Third Generation on my mom's Polish side. The perfect mix of warm and cool features I would say. I can cook a bit and bake a bit. I have my stubborn side and my side that can make any day seem like a holiday for the people I love. And overall I love tradition. (I'll let you decide which traits came in as Italian or Polish) But I have always wondered.... Maybe is't not as clear cut as I thought! So in passing I have mentioned how cool it would be to actually be tested. My kit is on it's way! dum dum dum!!!!!
I also received so much love in cards, calls, texts and messages, a serenade of "Happy Birthday" with Cha Cha Chas included., flowers, a few salted caramel Macarons from Oakmkont Bakery as well as Banana Cream Pie! YUM! So really the day doesn't get much better unless everyone who was there on the day I was born could be here still. But my heart is full and I can trace all of this love back to everyone in my life who lifts me up, shelters me, and loves me unconditionally.
So from one stuffed Mama....Many Thanks! Let's see what this next year has in store for me!!
