Happy Birthday To Me: It’s My Golden Year!


Golden birthdays are that rare and exciting birthday when the date of your birth matches your age. Yes! Tis true! Tis so very special! Today is the start of my golden year. I was born on December 27 and I turn 27 today.

There are so many ways to celebrate a birthday – parties are great, but there are lots of other things I can do to make my day memorable, like wear a golden crown? Or as Carolina referred to it – a tiara. I’m in Florida for my big day, but I just wanted to pop in say thank you for helping me reach this ripe age. While I’m receiving lots of birthday love today, all of you deserve my heartfelt appreciate in the right measure. So, from me to you, I say thank you. You inspire me with what you make and you pamper me with the knowledge you give me. As Neil Young, “Long may you (and I) run.”

    Happy birthday! I’ve never heard of golden birthdays before which really doesn’t matter since mine is long gone (being born the 4th) but I do hope you have a lovely, golden day!

    Happy Belated Golden Birthday. I hope you are enjoying sunny Florida. I have never been, but I do know that the weather is generally as gorgeous this time of the year as it is in Cape Town (my home town). Thank you for your wonderful blog and taking time to say hello on your special day.

    Happy birthday Maddie! I hope you had a lovely day. My golden year is 28 so I still have a handful of years to go. Here’s to making 27 a fabulous one! I wish you a great year, filled with health, lots of love, plenty of knowledge, much success and tons of happiness.

    I’m new to your blog and have just adored your postings! We are both golden 27’s (mine was last year) and for my 27th birthday I wanted to learn how to sew and sew I did. Your post made me smile and made me feel like things had just come full circle. I hope you have the most wonderful golden year and am sending you the best energy to see you through!
