It's My Birthday!!

I think everyone loves there birthdays? My was always made so special by my family. I think I only ever had 2 parties with friends growing up so most were spent with my parents and grandparents. I love having being an October baby because of the memories it has evoked. The town I was born in is a college town and homecoming was always the weekend around my birthday. My grandfather owned a gas station one block off the courthouse square and we would park at the station and head to the square for the homecoming parade. Wasn't the parade in my honor? Before I left home to come to 1515, I made my favorite birthday meal my Grandmother always made me, swiss steak. I think I have it fairly well perfected.

The town has beautiful old trees and right now they are brilliant with oranges, reds and yellows. Tomorrow all my girl cousins will be arriving from out of town for our annual girls get together. So tomorrow night we will be having a fall harvest meal. Looking forward to my morning the leaves up to my ankles as I walk.

Have a great day with someone you love.

Me, with my Mom and brother, coming home from the hospital
