A Pink Saturday Birthday

IMG_0369 brushed
Shhhhhhh…
I have  a secret. 
I’ll let you in on it but you must keep it on the QT, okay?
Today, on this Pink Saturday, someone is having a birthday.
IMG_0363 brushed Yep, today is my birthday. 
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Up until two days ago, I had no intention of announcing  my birthday publicly on my blog.   I’m not one to revel in a lot of fanfare, hoopla or attention.

And I’ve long passed the age  where I get excited about my birthday and being another year older.  In fact, I’ve reached the point where I wish I could now start subtracting a year instead of adding one.

But because this is the first birthday I have celebrated since becoming a blogger, and it just happened to fall on a Pink Saturday this year,  I wanted to  share my pretty raspberry pink-tipped birthday roses with you…
Yes you.  All of you lovely, sweet people who have stopped by to visit.  Whether this is your first time here, or if you’ve been here from the very first post, I appreciate that you have taken  time out of your busy day to spend a few minutes  with me.    Thank you.          IMG_0356 brushed 
Now it wouldn’t be a proper  Pink Saturday Birthday  without refreshments so before you go visit our Pink Saturday hostess,  Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound, and all the other Pink Saturday participants,  please help yourself to a glass of ice cold pink lemonade…

and a bite-sized  pink fairy cake…or two.   Yum!pink fairy cake brushed
And remember…
if anyone should ask…
you don’t know anyone who is having a birthday today.   
Right?        
I didn’t think so.                   :::wink:::
