    birthday muffin cake blog party invite photo
    Today marks my 37th year on this planet. Though my latitude and longitude seem a bit off, I think I’ll be here for at least a little while longer.

    It’s kinda cool having a birthday at the beginning of the year, it’s not just a New Year then, it seems like there’s this whole rebirthing thing going on in my head every January. The getting the mind ready for a new year, the mucking up my food choices for just 15 more days. The countdown until Christmas, then the countdown AFTER Christmas. Aaah now I can get on with the year.

    Why do I feel like giving something away today? Hm. Maybe I’ll do that. Okay.

    The best Birthday wish (left in comments) gets a custom 4×6 graphite (pencil) drawing. Did you get that? You’re actually going to win something on MY birthday. Heh, am I desperate for Birthday Wishes or what? Bring your friends, for the love of Birthdays. I’m having a party! Make me laugh, make me cry, be sincere or silly – the wish that moves me the most wins.

    And have a cranberry muffin! It goes great with coffee.

    Love, your Birthday Princess.
    P.S. That is my cranberry muffin. Mm.

    Happy Snacky Birthday x 37!

    I’m bringing you the one and only very famous Swedish Semla!

    Warning! As innocent as a bun cake can be, this is the one that killed (!) a monarch, when in 1771 the Swedish King Adolf Fredrik died of a seizure having eaten too many semla after a large meal!

    So only eat one! Promise!

    Here you can see the right technique to eat it:
    How To Eat Swedish Semla

    It’s a FUN BUN!

    […] Leanne Wildermuth – Artist by Nature is an amazing artist and the designer of my awesome WordPress theme. As most of you know, I recently had some server problems with my site and she worked quickly & diligently with BlueHost to get the problem fixed. We all know how stressful it can be when you’re site isn’t loading and you don’t know how to fix it. One email to her and she was on it! Now that’s customer service! […]

    Happy Birthday, Princess. I’ll lift a pint of ale to you tonight…your birthday is an excellent reason to do so (though I confess I might have lifted it anyway). And here’s my favorite Celtic blessing to lay upon your head:
    May those who love us, love us.
    And those who don’t love us,
    May God turn their hearts;
    And if He doesn’t turn their hearts,
    May He turn their ankles,
    So we will know them by their limping.

    Oh, I would love one of your beautiful sketches. But I’d leave you a b-day wish anyway. Okay, here goes:

    Wishing you a year of dreams fulfilled, hugs returned, sweet compliments whispered, steaming hot beverages on freezing cold days and icy drinks on sweltering afternoons, music that moves you, books that delight you, jeans that fit, blog comments that inspire, bargains on new handbags and always, always perfect health and lots of love.

    Leanne: I am visiting via my friend, Yellow Rose to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY. As “icing on the cake” remember that “30 is the new 20″ and 40 is the new 30”. So, you are young. CELEBRATE! I promise to raise a unit of bottled water after my workout! :cheerful:

    Oh, I missed it! Dang! Do you know that my father-in-law and one of my best friends also have birthdays on January 15th? So now three of my favorite people share a birthday!

    Oh, and giving gifts to others is a hobbit tradition. (Yes, I know that. I am the wif of a geek, afterall.)

    I know this isn’t a democracy, but I think All Adither should get that print. That is about the most perfect birthday wish I’ve ever heard. And me? The print would be a wonderful prize, but I think I’d settle for a bite of that cranberry muffin. It looks so yummy, it’s making my mouth water!

    Here’s hoping you had a wonderful day with your very favorite people, and that the next year treats you better than any year before!
