!! Happy !!

It's a happy day, indeed.
I cannot believe it's been 24 years
since my son and his bride said "I Do!"
But, yes, it's been that long.

My son and my daughter married in the same year.
Son first.
If you know Donald and Dawn,
you would think this couple is them.

And it's a happy day for Lidia as well.
She's not celebrating her anniversary though.
It's her birthday!
Kick up your heels and celebrate.
Enjoy your day, Lidia.

More Chicagoland celebrations

Happy, happy birthday, Ewa.

By the way ...
the image of the lady with the red hair
was no mistake!

If you know Ewa,
you know she's got beautiful red hair, too.

In your Easter bonnet

Through the years ...
Looks like the Easter bunny
was hopping through the snow this year.

As I grew, so did the bunny.

In addition to the bunnies,
my parents always, always, always
went to Peggy Gray's Candies
in Erie, Pennsylvania.
I can still taste the chocolate bunnies!
And the best part?
I'm pretty sure they are still in business.
If you live in the area,
I highly recommend a visit.
Oh - and have a bite for me, too.


Okay - enough reminiscing!
Let's get down to the present.

Monica sent friends and family
Easter cards again this year.






Kathleen's aunts
received these cards.
I love the bunnies in this image,
I had to create another card presenting them.




And last but not least,
sweet Vicki is remembered again this year.

Grieving is painful

Yes, it is!
A few of my friends grieve.

Hopefully, a beautiful sympathy card helps,
knowing that others care.







Even when a pet leaves us,
the grieving is painful.

Birthday Wishes for another friend

Krista has more than one friend.
Therefore, another birthday card.
 Perhaps all three friends
will be kicking up their heels in celebration.

Happy birthday, Kelli.

Birthday Wishes

From a friend.
To a friend.

Because that's what friends are for.
They send each other birthday cards
and shower them with their love.

That's exactly what Krista has done.

Here's hoping your day
is filled with love, Cassie.
Enjoy!

A Springtime Birthday

A Springtime birthday
deserves a special Springtime bouquet of flowers.

Happy birthday, Marcelle.
I know your brother wishes
he could spend the day with you.

I'm just not sure

Does she love books more?
Or does she love flowers more?
It's probably a toss up.

Doesn't matter
because she's got both.

Happy, happy birthday, sweet Kay.
Enjoy your day!

Mariah Grace

Such a beautiful name
for such a beautiful girl.

It's difficult for me to wrap my head
around the fact that she
is 18 years old today.
Where has the time gone?

I wrote in the card:
"If you save this card for 63 years,
all you have to do is turn it upside down
and you'll have your
81st birthday card."

And of course,
I signed it "with love
from Chew."

Go ahead.
Turn your head upside down
and you'll see what I mean!

Happy birthday, Mariah Grace.

A double happy

It was a happy day xx-number of years ago.
I'm not just being kind.
I really don't know
how many candles Julie will be blowing out today.
(Even if I knew, I wouldn't tell though.)

Happy birthday, Julie!
Celebrate and give it all you got.

Krista's papaw celebrates today.
I guess it's okay to say this.
He celebrates 82 years of life.
How fortunate!
Sir, I hope you enjoy everything about today.

Happy birthday to both of you!

Whatever the fare, enjoy!

Celebrate in style - and all month long!

Today is her birthday.
I know she will enjoy every second of the day.

Happy birthday, my dear!

Belated birthday and on-time engagement

Sometimes things slip through the cracks.
I'm not proud of it and I apologize
to you, Olivia, for forgetting
to post this on your birthday.
I hope it was happy
and you were spoiled silly.

Best wishes and congratulations
to Keith and Elly.
