It is really an amazing thing that you are able to think of this many wonderful things to be happy about - and then you share them with us. It's the little things - but they are the most important things.

I hope the kids feel better soon. Happy Birthday!

......and to be happy to celebrate another FABULOUS year in your 30's!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY WONDERFUL FRIEND!! Sorry the boys are home sick with you- I was hoping you were getting a little "Carrie" time all to yourself!!

What an awesome list! We do have so many things to be grateful for and you summed up about 90% of my list too. (except for the sewing, baking and cooking...but I'm not as talented as you in those areas!!)

Thanks for being the wonderful person you are!
I miss you and love you!!
