Lucky Jacqueline ~ Enjoy your win! Koralee, I can exactly relate to your May. I have four birthdays, Mother's Day and several graduations. But, I DO love to celebrate....every day, really. Good luck with all of your baking and remember to take it all in and ENJOY! xx P&H

Good Morning Sweet Girl,
Hmmm I bet your kitchen is smelling quite FINE!
I must say I do love a good birthday party...I always say "when you see ballons on the drive way, It's either a garage sale or a birthday party...and I love both." Have a wonderful day of celebration.

What a lovely surprise...How very dear of you and Molly to pop into the store to visit...I have been so very blessed to be able to meet, in person, a few of these "kindreds" that I love to chat with daily...Oh, and you came bearing gifts...completely and totally delightful...I shall plant this "love" in a very special spot...thank you my friend. Really would love to do this all over again with a cuppa in hand...sending a hug your way...Rosie

Congratulations to a very fortunate Jackie...enjoy that crazy cute bag.

My mother had 4 of her 5 children in September. I once teased her and said, "Cold winter nights, mom?" And she said, "Happy New Year." (I shouldn't have asked!)

Good luck with all of the celebrations - happy baking - and I adore the picture of those candles! SOOOOO cute!
