Autumn has arrived in the upper Midwest…time for the Virgos to light it up birthday style!!
Fire fixins’ for ten year old’s belated party tonight:
And for seventeen years bonfire extravaganza tomorrow…
I’ll be over here hoping for no wind 🙂
Ten years ago today, I was confined to a bed with a pitocin drip in an attempt to jump start labor. Dramatic from the womb, Mini Me was born at 9:21 PM on August 24, 2005…5 weeks ahead of schedule.
That *was* a Hello Kitty cake…
My little cusper has all of the fiery flair of a Leo, yet it is often tempered the by earthy practicality of a Virgo. She constantly fills up whatever space she is in by either demanding attention outright, or with singing and dancing that is impossible to ignore…
She has been a diva since birth, but she is also incredibly kind and compassionate. When she was six, she ran a stand for Toys for Tots at our church festival to collect money for toy donations. Last year she worked as a peer mediator for her fourth grade class. Yesterday, when we asked her where she wanted to go for her birthday dinner, she picked a local favorite Mexican restaurant rather than her favorite steakhouse because she wanted to make sure that her ShowBiz brother could find something to eat.
She is my greatest challenge and a source of never ending delight.
For all that you are and all that you will be I wish you the happiest of birthdays my very own Mini Me!!
(we LOVE pink!!)
Since Guylty’s oof so kindly directed you here to drop birthday wishes, here’s a spot to put theM. Happy Birthday to all my fellow Virgos out there…especially Maria, Kathy and my mom who share the exact same day. Here’s a little Carly Simon ditty for the occasion:
