I had a great birthday and, because it’s Thursday, I’m sharing my thoughts in 3 bullet points.
- I started the day by wearing my favorite dress, making a TikTok about my birthday, and driving to work listening to September by Earth Wind & Fire plus Trip Around the Sun by Jimmy Buffett & Martina McBride.
- I got to eat my favorite foods, Mexican for lunch and pizza for dinner. The kids came over and Hannah brought me a sprinkle cake and it was fun.
- I was showered with birthday wishes from all of you plus my family and friends, near and far. Plus an awesome handmade birthday card from Jackie! It made me feel very special and it’s really fun to hear from people I have connected with over the years – and see some of them connect with each other, too.
And now it’s onward to year 58!
I’ll be taking a couple of days off from blogging to celebrate the arrival of autumn with a mini camping trip. I’ll be back on Tuesday with the next Read With Us book announcement!

Have fun camping (I know you will)!
HBD! That cake was a work of art! Enjoy your camper! It sure beats our tent.
I hope that cake tasted as good as it looked! Sounds like a perfect birthday celebration to me — being surrounded by your loved ones. Have a fantastic trip!
Happy Birthday ?
I hope you had a great one. You look younger than 50 so whatever you do to maintain that young glow, you’re doing it very well, keep it up. I love pizza and Mexican too. Enjoy camping. Be safe!
Oh! A Welcome to Autumn Camping trip sounds so fun! (I confess… I am a tiny bit jelly!) I am thinking sunny thoughts, pleasant days, and campfire nights for your get away!
What a perfect birthday, Carole! I hope you wallowed in all that love.
Love the wrap-up Carole! All the best … and enjoy your long weekend!
A mini camping trip is a grand way to celebrate not only the beginning of Fall but also your Birthday! Enjoy and have fun.
What a perfect day, Carole! (Well. Except for that one nasty surprise in your book . . . ) I love seeing your smiling face (and that AWESOME cake!!!) in your photos with your family. XOXO And ENJOY your fall camping adventure. I can’t wait to hear all about it! XO
Have a wonderful camping trip! And I hope you enjoyed that cake!
